    Default Whats the correct factory jack for a HQ sedan

    hi
    Currently have the wind up/mechanical bottle jack , with "L" shaped bracket . With jack winder handle with Square drive .
    Above seems incorrect

    Should it be scissor jack with ""LOCATING BALL " and a ratchet spanner to operate

    Does the scissor and accessories fit in a foam tray and fits into rear Qtr cavity .

    my ol' man had a 'Q.. it was a sedan bought new
    .. the car had bottle jack in it and he was never happy about that
    (no bloody better than the one in the HT Kingy we had)

    my 2nd car was also a 'Q sedan (bought 2nd hand).. it had a scissor jack
    and no.. no foam tray that you ask about

    The foam tray you ask about fits in underneath a GTS spare wheel with a scissor jack and short L shaped wheel nut spanner, do a Google search for pictures.

    I got raped for the foam block by Rare Spares last year.

    hi
    I suspect early Hq came with L shaped jack and later year Hq came with ball socket scissor jack .Anyone verify this???

    Jase
    Are saying the foam insert fits
    - inside backside of rim and so rim is therefore attached to floor face down

    I'm not sure with a stocker but in the GTS it tucks in under the spare wheel which angles from the lower boot floor up to the high section. If you open the link below, click on a pic and scroll through them, there's a couple of pictures of the boot and you'll see what I mean.
