If you have the owners manual it will say where to exactly place the jack. If not one can be picked up at a junk yard for a couple of dollars. One thing they probably won't tell you in the owners manual is that when removing the tire to never put your hands at the 6 and 12 o'clock positions on the tire. I don't mean to scare you, but this is very dangerous due to the fact that if the vehicle slips off the jack your hands could get crushed either between the fender and the tire and/or between the tire and the ground. Always put your hands in the 3 and 9 o'clock positions on the tire when removing. And never crawl under the vehicle with the factory jack.
Hope this helps.

factory jack to be placed in front of tire inbetween notches on seem. A manual floor jack can be used placing it under center connection bracket for rear wheels. Be shure to block front tires when using floor jack and have car in gear if a manual or park if automatic transmision.
