    As above, where do you jack your car up?

    I changed both rear tyres last weekend & used a trolley jack with a block of wood cut to size to fit the rectangular jacking point boxes (plastic!) in which the ordinary accessory jack fits. I was therefore jacking up directly under the wooden block which was in the normal jack locating box. Because the box is plastic, don't try & jack up directly under it using the jack.

    Had I been using axle stands though for a bigger job, I'm not sure where I could have put them though.

    If you search the forum using 'jack' or 'jacking', then there are quite a few threads about jacking up.

    I think we could do with some pucker photos from some experts as to where to put the axle stands etc. only ever had this issue on the vectra I have to say and last time I jacked it up, I too made some wooden blocks to fit where the normal car jack goes.
    Cheers Pete
