Looking at the guide, the one showing the axel stand indicates its on the subframe. (which talking to certain Admin indicates that was possible)

I took this doing mine, worthwhile addition to the guide?

Do you break V6's as often as TheBoy? Then you need tunnie's towing services, recovery costs are just the humiliation of being towed by 2/3's of an engine

Good, chance of bending the triangular plate with the stands there by the looks.

I dint think we can recommend that tbh. Sad

Didn't do any damage I can see. Where else could you put the stands?  Undecided

Because the stand is partly on the sil edge as well, which isn't ideal either.

There is a suitable place by the exhaust hangers. Will take some pics at Newent if I remember.

I have to confess, I use the tunnie method - jack on the centre bolt through bush, and axle stand just behind it on the plate

Stand as shown, jack can go either as shown or on the bush plate centre bolt, depending on the footprint of tools used.

Problem found with this method is LPG cable routing, near side is fine but off side, some muppet fixed some polyflex & LPG loom along the rail where the stand would go  Roll Eyes

No it doesn't. Look at pic carefully again Wink.  Utilising chassis rail very close to triangular plate, not where we did
