    Using trolley jack on 2014 Octavia

    Hi, Could anyone advise me where are suitable under body jacking points on new style Skoda Octavia are? The whole underside is covered in plastic covers, so the stronger parts of floor pan/chassis rails cannot be seen. I want to remove front wheels but no jack was supplied with car so will have to use a trolley jack. Any suggestions on jacking points & where axle stands can be placed would be much appreciated.

    No Jack supplied? Did you buy it new? Maybe pop into the local dealer and ask their advice. Or invest in a Haynes Manual?

    I've purchased this tool and a scissors jack in the past for my car.

    My Octavia didn't come with a wheel brace and there was only one spare locking wheel nut in the booth.

    Get yourself a foot pump if you really want to splash out.

    Its difficult to find reliable skoda parts online usually buy on autotrader

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Look under the sill and you will clearly see the strengthened jacking points. They are marked with a symbol.

    With my Yeti I use a rubber puck under the jacking point similar to his one.
