Try some Kano Kroil instead of PB Blaster. Anecdotal evidence seems to point to it working better. I can assure you that it smells better!

Sorry to hear that the jack doesn't fit.

That bites.
Maybe I'll start searching for a good scissor jack.
Thanks for posting your findings.

I have one from my C5,that I sold a few years ago.
i think it was from a BMW. New and made out of
aluminum. Iíll look for it later today. I think this will work for you.

Pretty sure that says Mercedes.

This thread has some other alternatives, including aluminum jacks from RX7s and Porsches

Well, guess what I found on eBay?
A New Old Stock shiny C3 scissor jack for $135 with free shipping!
So, I'll be using (or more hopefully, not using) a stock jack.
My old jack's bearing fell apart once I got it freed up a little, the ball bearings falling all over the floor.

No jack or spare onboard here. The tub is there for looks only. USAA roadside assistance rocks if I get in a bind. I'm done changing tires on the side of the road!
