I jacked my Ateca up for the first time today (I have a Cupra with 20 rims and wanted to know the rim width and offset, some Seat have failed to provide me) and whilst doing so had a quick gander under the front to see where I might position an axle stand, as I want to fit mud flaps, and as we all know, working with just a jack is tempting fate. What I saw was (unlike my previous MQB platform car, an S3) an expanse of smooth plastic undertray with no obvious support points. However, on my car at least, the jacking point is much longer than I’ve been used to, around 100mm. It seems to me potentially possible to position two scissor jacks side by side on the one jacking point, thus giving additional security (when coupled with wheel chocks, etc.) for working on the arches. I’d still not get under though. I shall tr6 and borrow another jack and see if I’m right.
