    I picked up a jack + 2 axle stands (3 tonne limit each) + mechanics tray (on rollers!) kit from Halfrauds for about £40, several years ago.

    Fingers crossed they might still do them.

    Seriously recommended!

    They have something

    Failing that I’m in nottingham and have a (mostly) clear garage, a small trolley jack and a couple of axle stands.

    please don’t put the car on bricks and go under it, super dangerous. i got mine from the car boot sale, years ago. better still get some ramps, but shouldn’t the car be level to change the oil?

    Thanks all. I have the stuff back home in Wales hence not wanting to buy, we’re on internships in Derby.

    In that case you’re welcome to use my garage.

    Hi all,

    Trying to do an oil/oil filter replace (got both) on my MX5, but don’t have any axle stands or even bricks, so struggling to get under the car at a decent angle.

    Does anyone around have some stands, a jack, and some space so that I can come round one evening and do the work, in return for some beers/£s?

    Alternatively, does anyone know of a good but cheap garage who would be willing to do the work with my parts?

    Thanks, Duane,
