JACKING

Print

See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

The vehicle is supplied with a scissors jack for emergency road repairs. The scissors jack may be used to raise the car via the notches on either side at the front and rear of the doors. Do not attempt to position the jack in any other place. Always block the diagonally opposite wheel when using a jack.

When using stands, use the side members at the front or trailing axle front mounting crossmember at the rear for placement points.

Whenever you plan to work under the car, you must support it on jackstands or ramps. Never use cinder blocks or stacks of wood to support the car, even if you're only going to be under it for a few minutes. Never crawl under the car when it is supported only by the tire-changing jack.

Small hydraulic, screw, or scissors jacks are satisfactory for raising the car. Drive-on trestles or ramps are also a handy and safe way to both raise and support the car. Never support the car on any suspension member or underbody panel.
