Default Car Jacking 307

Hi, please could anyone tell me how to get the front end of a 307 onto axle stands. The jacking advice is to jack up at jack point and then place axle stand in the same place, this is hard to do.

Cheers

Wouldn't you put axle stands on the axles?

could just be me being the way i am, but if your asking advice on where to put stands when you jack up the car are you doing the right thing by working on it your self, as i said could just be me what i do is jack the car up, put the stand next to the jacking point, lower the jack so the stand touchs the sil,so the jack still has tjhe car wieght and your not doing damage to the sill using just the stand, if your doing work in the wheel well put the wheel under the sill too, which means if the car suddenly drops because a mistake has been made your not crushed and you can still jack the car back up........

Thanks for the advice. I had thought that this was the way but Haynes book does not really make the safe jacking and stand positions very clear. I have to do the work myself because I have no more money to pay a professional to do the job and the car needs to be on the road. I've spent 1000,s repairing this wonderful heap and its only done 90000. thanks for advice.

Try using the jack on the jacking point as you would, then with suitable heavy timber blocks that you would have handy???..block out a suitable point on the sub frame and lower the car onto that. A car ramp topped with timber will do as well, but always to a point on the sub frame not on the body and dont use the slope of a ramp. You could use a trolley jack on the sub frame and block the jacking point instead. I like the car to be well steady, jacking from one side at a time to get on axle stands can be hazardous, a danger of tipping the stand over if you aren't familiar with the job. Be careful, Brad

That's what we do - use metal car ramps with thick slabs of scaffolding planks.

Thanks for this information, very useful and I have managed to safely support the car. To answer posts of whats wrong with it, the current issue is front suspension ball joints, links, track rod and track ends all have a lot of wear on them along with front wheel bearings needing to be replaced. Over the past four years, two lots of injector seals, the normal FAP related liquids, sensor replacement, radiator replaced, battery replaced, discs pads, two broken suspension springs, one collapsed whilst driving and caused Tyre to blow out. Clutch and fly wheel, things for the near future timing belt, rear suspension creaking badly, awaiting clutch and fly wheel to go any time. maybe expecting to much to hope a car at 90000 should not need this much care these days. Cost so far paid about 8000 in 2006 for car spent 5000 ish on repairs, service, care. Cars worth about 2500 in 2012. The cost of diesel has almost doubled since I got the car. A horse and cart maybe a cheaper alternative for the future. Thanks for the advice, no doubt i'll be back for more
