Was at the scrappy today looking for some bits and discovered a jacking kit in the boot of a wrecked 75.
As I am hoping to pick up a spare 16" union at some time and ditch the can of mr whippy I bought it for £7 which I thought was ok.

Its in good condition in the black foam liner but I am not sure what should be present, pretty sure it is not complete.

It has:
Jack
Cranking handle
towing eye
Knob for anchoring wheel to floor (with a black plastic spinner?)


Have added the wheel bolt tool from my kit.

Anything missing?

Thats all I have Simon and mines still cling filmed with a split in for the locking nut to go in. At least I can't remember anything else in there.

I also have a double ended screwdriver & a wheel chock that is in two halves and rotates about itself to save space.
Where's mine? Why haven't I got one of those? :mad: :lol:

Ask around some of the ghetto areas of Brum, they'll probably tell you that what you should have in the car-jacking kit is a brick (for smashing the drivers window), a gun (for threatening said driver), gloves (so you don't scratch your hands on broken glass, and eliminate fingerprints) and either a hoodie or balaclava.

Or am I getting my car-jacking confused? :p

Not sure on the screwdriver but as far as I know the chocs were tourer only. Hmmm, chocs an accessory in a tourer, that will keep the wife happy :D

It's mentioned in the tourer handbook supplement - to remove the rear light units ........use the flat-bladed screwdriver (supplied in the tool kit)............

Does any one have an mk2 75 or ZT? How on earth are you meant to change a bulb at the back? I have a cut out with a door so I can change the bulb but Ian off here when his bulb blew had to unclip the carpet trim form the boot!

The handbook insists that a Tourer MUST be chocked on the opposite corner to the jack. I wondered why this didn't apply to the Saloon - maybe the extra weight, or are the jacking points different?

No screwdriver but I have the chocs on a 2001 saloon.

Didn't have the clingfilm either, but thats rectified now.
