    Hi everyone
    I have an a class amg sporty with the night package run flat tyres. I was thinking of removing the wheels to give then a clean on the inside and clean the brake callipers but I have discovered there is no jack in the car. Is anyone aware of the correct jack to enable me to remove these wheels please

    Can you get a small trolley jack under the side skirts to raise the car? Halfords sell some reasonably priced trolley jacks.
    Failing that, I'd look for a jack on eBay specifically designed for your A class model.

    Thanks for the reply, I have a trolley jack myself but wasn't sure if the cup on the jack will not cause any damage. I will be careful when lifting.

    If you can pick up an ice hockey puck (think Sports Direct sell) these work well to protect when jacking, alternatively if enough room use a length of wood between jack and sill.
