I laways thought they were the cut out semi circles in the sill about three inches from the edge ? That's what my manual says, and i've never had any problems, when i've used my scissor jack there, my trolley jack goes further in though onto one of the main chassis members.
I drive my car onto a piece of 4"x4" which gives me enough height to get the jack under the sill and then i use my trolly jack with two bits of wood either side of the sill to spread the load and stop the sill from being squished!
Hi guys, just came back from my local stealers, and have the correct parts to allow you to use a hydraulic jack on the golf, they fitted these parts as standard to the audi tt, i,m going to fit them hopefully tomorrow, will post pics and part numbers, why didnt vw fit these parts to the car at the start????????????????
If you go to your stealer and ask for a set of jacking pads ..(thats what I called them) they are rubber pads that fit into the underside of the car and make jack a piece of.....eerrr.... urine !
As standard the holes they fit in have caps fitted into the space, but you pull those out and jack the car up with the new pads sitting over the exposed hole, they then pop ! into the hole and hey presto....easy jacking points !
Hi Baron!!!, when you fitted the jack rubbers in did you put the rubber bits in first, by pushing them in with the trolley jack ,and a bit of lubrication `ooh eer missus`, then use the trolley jack to push the hard plastic piece, again with a bit of lubrication, in to the hard rubber part, until it snaps in?
