    Car has jacking points on the side of the car - remove the cover plate on the side skirts

    You may have to get on hands and knees to see them

    I use the Astra J OPC/VXR lift positions under the bodywork as shown in the second diagram down the page in a post at,

    that way you can then remove the subframe and engine / gearbox if you wish.

    There are jack points behind the wheels about 6 inches (15cm) back to jack the car up. You will need axle stands to have it completely off the floor safely though

    This!

    If you lift by the jack points behind the covers with a 4 point lift you will damage the sill lips as 2 vauxhall garages have done with my wife’s! One reason my vxr, from new, has never seen the inside of a Vx garage!
