Environmental Protection Precautions
It is illegal to pour used oil on to the ground, down 
sewers or drains, or  into water courses.

Burning of used engine oil in small space heaters or 
boilers should only be considered for units of 
approved design and in compliance with the 
equipment manufacturer's recommendations. The 
heating system must meet the regulatory standards 
of HMIP for small burners of less than 0.4 MW. If in 
doubt check with the appropriate local authority and/
or manufacturer of the approved appliance.

Dispose of used oil and filters through authorised 
waste disposal  contractors and licensed waste 
disposal sites, or through the waste oil  reclamation 
trade. If in doubt, contact the Local Authority for 
advice on  disposal facilities.

Safety instructions

Whenever possible, use a lift or pit when working 
beneath vehicle, in  preference to jacking. Chock 
wheels as well as applying parking brake.

Jacking
Always use the recommended jacking points. The 
recommended jacking points are shown in 
theLIFTING AND TOWING  sub-section of the 
INFORMATION section.

Always ensure that any lifting apparatus has 
sufficient load capacity for the weight to be lifted.

Ensure the vehicle is standing on level ground prior 
to lifting or jacking.

Apply the handbrake and chock the wheels.

WARNING: Do not work on or under a vehicle 
supported only by a jack. Always support the 
vehicle on safety stands.

Do not leave tools, lifting equipment, spilt oil, etc., 
around or on the  work bench area. Always keep a 
clean and tidy work area.

Brake shoes and pads
Always fit the correct grade and specification of 
brake linings. When renewing brake pads and brake 
shoes always replace as complete axle sets only.
