    Default Jacking points

    Silly question time. Can you put a trolley jack under the normal plastic jacking points. First time wheels off tomorrow.

    Course you can, but I would use a block of wood between the jack and the jack point though - do this all the time - its fine mate.

    I usually find a stronger more suitable point as I once crushed a jacking point doing this to the point that it was useless
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    They are made form plastic and just push on. They can easily be damaged by the "foot" on a trolly jack.

    Plastic jacking points???? I've always used a trolley jack to remove my wheels, using the point under the sill pointed to by the little arrow on the side skirt. It's a good solid point.

    Yep. The square tube hanging down from by the sill is made of plastic ( well some form of). I have seen makes in them, made by a trolly jack.
