I don’t use a trolley jack at all, but if you do, you need an adapter to stop the lip getting crushed.

Are these the adapters you speak of? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2X-Rubber-Pad-with-Slots-Hydraulic-Ramp-Jack-Jacking-Pad-Adapter-Trolley-Jack/133006035233?hash=item1ef7c70921:g:TaUAAOSwzMlcnZK1

Hi Peter,

I used those rubber pad block with a low profile trolley jack from Machine and Marks which is a firm,

I found that some trolley jacks won,t fit under the car as my car was quite low,

Hope that is helpful. JohnJames   8)  8)

Thanks John I was looking at low profile jacks, but I thought one of those things would be useful to have in the car in case it needs jacking while out, if I dont sort a scissor jack that is.

Hi Peter,

For everyday use the Toyota MR2 MARK 3 Jack and the trolley jack for home,

Another good idea you can buy long plastic wedges so if you get a puncture and can,t get the jack underneath drive it onto the wedges

 it will give you enough room to get a jack underneath the car,

This is what the AA carry in their vans if they have a car with low profile tyres and they can,t get a jack underneath,

            Hope this is helpful  J J       8) 8)
