Why are YOU worried about the cost? THEY should replace them for free. If they WRECKED you car they would have to fix it, and this is no different. There have been letters sent to dealers, there are service bulletins on the subject, and the jacking pads are required special tools for the car.My car has just been to the Opel garage for a diff. repair.
They did NOT use the GM jacklifting parts.
They damaged both the front fenders.
They repaired them but made a mess of it.
Does someone know what de fenders cost.
Please let me know.
Thank's and greetings from Holland.
An official "J-43625" kit should come as a set of two adapters. If the seller is not clear, pick up the phone and ask them how many adapters come with that part number.If I'm reading the FSM correctly, I need to buy at least two J43625 Lift Pad Adapters to jack up the entire front end. I push them into specific points of the body and then jack on those points. Correct?
I only have one floor jack so are there spots where I can place jack stands, allowing me to move the floor jack to the other side of the car and lift? (I also don't like to be under a car with just the hydraulic jack holding it up.)
BEWARE: If you attempt to put a stand or attempt to lift anywhere else on the underbody other than the official lift points you may crush the underbody (I am guilty of crumpling steel in two locations, front and rear, on two different Kappas -- more encouragement for buying some ramps if you're at all uncomfortable finding a secondary location for your jacks.)Anyone have advice for putting it on jackstands?
I learned the hard way that (some?) hockey pucks compress outward, and this further damaged an already cracked panel. They're great for awkwardly shaped/angled things like cross bars, pumpkins, oil pans, etc where the official puck just won't do and you need a more forgiving surface than the lift itself.. but I will never use one as a spacer to protect the body/panel from the lift at the official lift points again.or make your own with a hockey puck.
