    Default Urgent help! Made a bit of a **** up!

    Hi guys.

    Today went and bought a new exhaust flexi/centre section and a pair of ramps to "help" do the job.

    Problem 1... forgot to get a clamp, oh well not the end of the world!

    Problem 2... The ****** ramps won't fit under the car! The front bumper is too low (and it's just a normal hatchback, no lowering or anything!)

    Anyone got any ideas for me?! I'm a little stuck right now!

    Anyone found a way of using ramps without removing the bumper?!

    Have you not got a trolly jack. You could then jack the car up on one side put the ramp under the wheel, then do the same the other side.

    Get 2 long and thick planks of wood and support them with something solid and use them as a ramp to drive up onto the ramps you already have. If you do try this make sure you have an assistant to keep an eye on your makeshift ramps to make sure they do not shift.
    I will not be held responsible for any damage that may occur. This is the method I use but you do have to be careful.

    have you got a trolley jack as you cud jack the car up and then put the
    ramps under the wheels.

    the best way would of invested in a set of axle stands rather the ramps

    Cheers guys!

    My trolley jack is a bit pants so i've done the "bits of wood" method, worked fine!

    Thought about axle stands but i never trust them as much as a good solid pair of ramps.

    Now to go and fit a new exhaust... in the dark....
