How is the car positioned? I didnt have access to a lift at the time and had the front up on axle stands. Putting the box back in I laid on my back rested it on my legs and lifted my knees basically. Its a bit of a tit single handed but can be done, easier with 2.

sent from a telephone that resembles a well known chocolate bar, dosen't taste like it though!

I've always used a trolley jack,make sure it's balanced OK.
