Re: J11 1.5 dci 2016 jack stand position

IMG_1650.jpeg IMG_1649.jpeg Hi DFave Thanks for info. I have one of those jack pad things and i found them totally useless. It compressed so much it distorted to one side. I think I have solved it now , have jacked up on the lower suspension arm and then placed axle stands in the correct jack point...

Re: Oil filter change J111.5dci

Thanks again. Think I have sorted it now. Took the plunge and ordered both types of wrench fluted and flat.. Already had a Bosch filter ( flats) and car is fluted (OEM) so it was a choice of buying another filter or two tools. Two tools seemed to be the better option. Now geared up for what comes n...
