Whenever a vehicle is raised above the ground, use extreme caution. If one end of the car is being lifted, always block the other to prevent any wheel movement. Finally, never raise a car on any surface that is not flat.
When using a floor jack, the front of the vehicle may be raised by positioning the floor jack under the front body rail behind the suspension arm-to-body bracket. The front, as well as either side of the rear end may be lifted by positioning the floor jack under the rocker flange at the contact points used for the jack supplied with the vehicle. The rear of the vehicle may be raised by positioning the floor jack forward of the tie rod bracket or by positioning the floor jack under either rear lower control arm.
On vehicles equipped with All Wheel Drive (AWD), the vehicle must be in 2 wheel drive or rotation from the wheel being removed could be transferred to one or more of the other wheels, causing the vehicle to move or fall off the jack.
The service jack provided with the vehicle is only intended to be used during emergencies, such as changing a flat tire. Never use the service jack to hoist the vehicle for any other service. Refer to the owner's manual when using the jack supplied with the vehicle.
