Need to replace both rear tyres, just wondering the best way to Jack up the rear so I can pull both wheels. Are there any do's or dont's of jacking.

Ok cool. One of those tang things is already of due to rust. I'm going to get some stainless ones made and replace them all.

Hi John, the V8, I took a look today was wondering if centre of chassis was strong enough, with a piece of wood to spread load of course.

Under the gearbox then lower onto ramps with yellow pages for cushioning under each sill just ahead of each rear wheel arch.  Safe and convenient.  Prevents bending the tangs on the rear jacking points.

Hi Anthony, glad you got the info you required, I am not lucky enough to have a V8,        yet.   Bot seeds sown with SHMBO so may sell the S3 and the Éclat and invest.
