If you look under the car, there should be a chassis rail (looks like a long box section) which will run most of the car's length on both sides (not the sill), this should be fine to support the car. Use an axle stand with a bit of cloth on its head to prevent damaging the protective coating underneath.

Meant to add - if you happen to see any points on the chassis rail which have specially-shaped sections (you'll know it if you see it), then they are specifically designed as lifting points.

Hope this helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
