    I have had the car on axle stands for a few days whilst we tackled the rear arches. After the work has been completed , wheels back on and drove the 6 miles or so home with no problems or warning lights. As I turn into my road, the abs/brake lights come on. I reckon by jacking the car up, it...

    Where are the safe places, front and rear, to lift the car with a trolley jack? I’ve heard the rear diff can be used, is this correct or do I risk damaging it? How about at the front - I don’t necessarily have to lift the entire front in one go - I can do one side at a time. However if there...

    Most of these guides are form the “early days” of the F30. F30 Jacking / Jackstands Where is the best place to jack up the rear of the F30? How are the DIYers jacking up the car? Is there now an accepted way of doing this safely? I have seen reference to a front centre jacking point but my...

    Hi guys, The old tractor is due its MOT the end of next month, so I have been mulling over whether to put it through before I try and sell it (make it easier to sell, better price hopefully), or sell it now as is and avoid the potential hassle and expense of the remedial work.

    Hi All, Might seem a silly question but I've checked several youtube videos and even asked a garage and I can see where the jacking points are, behind the front wheels, but obviously I can't jack up the car and put axle stands on the same point, (it's too small, and they say not to jack...

    Hi I have a hole on the floor of the side skirt where the plastic jacking point should be under the car. Is it as simple as cutting then welding a new section in and if so how do I reattach the plastic foot to the new metal ?

    Hi everyone, Maybe a daft question as the car has very obvious jacking points! I'm going to change the oil and filter on my 528i. I have one trolley jack and not much room to be able to get my axle stands under the car. My Honda Accord had a central point to jack which meant both wheels went...

    I have recently bought a 330 d . I used my own jack to change wheels on the car the other day and noticed the jacking points are hollow rectangles. I used a bit of wood to fill the hollow to allow me to jack it but I wondered is there a better option or something better than a bit of wood...

    Hello all I had to jack the car up over the weekend to swap over the 15's for a set of 17s and I noticed rust on the jacking point felt a bit disappointed as some of it was literally flaking off. Any advice or recommendations. Thanks all Zak100
