My local tyre place jacked my MY1996 9000 from the rear using a trolley jack (hoist bays were all taken). To my horror the fellow raised the car from the middle of the axle. I noticed this after I peaked out of the waiting room (after about 30minutes). I got the guy to raise the car from the proper point (thanks for web page on 9000 site Bill). My question is, can I expect a problem now because of this?. Has my axle bent now? and can I expect problems down the track? I cannot understand why the axle is so weak (clearly this kind of mistake is commonplace where almost every other make of garden-vatiety car can take its weight over its axle). If there is a problem can you imagine the likelihood the tyre place is going to accept responsibility - Buckley comes to mind.
