Hey Charlie

Sorry to pester you, but you have become my guru so to speak lol. It just if you could tell me if you can post pictures on replys or not? as I am also trying to find out info on the Jack points and axle stand points for my car and would be good if i could upload some pics?

thanks again

You can use the attachment option to add pictures, or if you prefer you can host them in the Gallery and link them in your posts.

https://www.fiatforum.com/punto-evo/...ml#post4185712

to add pics,
use "advanced" reply page
and you'll see the "paperclip" next to the SMILEY

there is some good relevant info here;https://www.fiatforum.com/grande-pun...lt-issues.html

look at the TOP of GP page , as well as the EVO section..

my 2013 still has the same "ahem - design flaw" for the potential of water ingress from brake servo flange into cabin / footwell

so others may well still be there.

Re: Hello everyone - im a newbie

Hey guys i have justed posted in another thread about jacking points, but just in case you guys have any idea im going to paste what i ask and my pics again here as you seem very clued up, any info would be great but if not thanks anyway:


I have attached some pics:

Pic 1: Back end of car (Left side): Is the 'green circle' where I would place my axle stands?
Is the 'Yellow circle' where i would jack my car using a hydraulic jack?

Pic 2: Front of Car (left side): Same again with regards to jacking point and axle point. But there is a blue circle, is this just another place to jack the car using a hydraulic jack?
