Didn't get any manuals with my car and want to change the wheels.

I could have a look underneath and take a guess, but wondered if anyone had a picture of the points ?

Thanks

i might have imagine'd it but there may be little triangle marks on the sill pointing to where the jacking points are for the scisor jack ford thingy.

i seem to remember seeing em but the problem is i cant remember what car they were on when i saw em :}

but like has been said they are easy to figure out ( even if no markings are there, if there is no marks then i figured out where they were without them & survived to tell this tale :D )

couldn't find anywhere on the back to use a trolly jack, so had to use the crappy Ford jack.

The front was OK as theres a chassis rail section.

18's all fitted now :)

Thanks guys

The triangles were on the Mk1
The Mk3s are very difficult to spot but according to handbook the front one is 27cm from the front edge of the sill (back end of front wheel arch) which is the width of the handbook when opened up and the rear one is 10cm from the rear end of the sill (front end of the rear wheel arch).
There is a little raised strengthening bit of metal behind the lip of the sill.
