SOURCE: jacking points

there will be 4 points to place the factory jack in order to jack the car safely. they are rectangular in shape (the mirror image of the rectangle on the jack).

front 2 are located just behind the front wheels on the body/frame under the driver's & passenger door. follow the hinge of the front doors all the way down to where the paint transitions to the frame. look underneath and you will see the "hollow" rectangles. its about 6 inches back from the wheel arch.

rear 2 are just forward of the back wheels on the body/frame under the rear doors. they are about 8 inches forward of the wheel arch where it meets the frame. look for the "hollow" rectangles.

SOURCE: Jacking point for 1990 Toy Camry center of front.

Jack one side at a time. Place your jack under the lower control arm, or if it won't go under on a frame rail and lift from there. You may need to use some blocking to get the car high enough if you jack at a frame rail.
Jacking on the transaxle housing puts you at high risk of doing some very expensive damage. That housing is either aluminum or white metal. They don't bend like steel, they just break. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: lift points on chassis for a floor jack

I use exactly the same the jacking points as I would use with the factory scissor jack. They are reinforced to handle the load. You'll find these point marked with triangle stamped into the rail and in your owner's manual.

Where is the fuel pump reset button on a 2000 ford windstar?

It is in the passenger-side rear, where the jack is kept. Take off the cover to expose the scissor jack. This button is below the jack. (BTW, unless you've been in a crash, this is probably not your problem. I've been there, tried this, I know. )

Where are the jack points on a 1987 VW golf?

The jack points are in the sill joints under the car and are marked by wedge shaped indicators. THe jack for the car has a groove that the reinforced jack points fit into. The original jack is a Y type but an ordinary scissor jack with the correct groove in the lift point would also work. Attempting to lift the vehicle at any other point may cause damage to the underside of the car.

Instructions for replacing shocks & struts

Ok first off if the vehicle is equipped with air ride you need to turn the air ride off or you will blow out the rear bags when the rear is off the ground.

For the front Remove the wheel. Take off the upper shock nut. Now remover the two lower retaining nuts. Compress the shock and pull it out. Install in reverse order. Before installing the new shock push the piston completely down and allow it to return. Do this 2 to 3 times.

For the rear remove the wheel support the rear end with jack stands at the jack points. Now use your jack (not a scissor jack) and place it under the rear diff to support the rear diff. If you have another set of jack stands use them and support the rear axle as it sits.

Remove the lower shock bolt. Now remove the two upper shock bolts and the shock will come right out.

How do you remove jack from back of car, i had a flat, and can not get the jack out of the back.

hi from uk if your jack is the scissors type it will be placed in position and then the jacks long threaded screw is turned clockwise to extend the jack upwards as you would when using to jack car so you will have to screw thethread anticlockwise to lower/reduce jacks height and it will come loose and then come out of its fitting always refit jack as to above hope this helps ? best wishes for new year !

I have a 2003 Coachmen Freedom Class C. I want to

I have a Coachman "Road Trec" class C and I installed my scissor jacks near the frame member for the front just to the rear of the bumper. I installed a length of angle iron from the left frame rail to the right frame rail then installed the jacks on the angle iron as close to the frame a possible.
On the rear I cut a piece of 3 " angle iron and bolted it to the outside of the frame then mounted the jack on the angle iron for each side.
