Volkswagen Golf/Jetta/Cabriole 1990-1999



Your car is equipped with a single post, crank handle jack which fits the jacking points behind the front wheel and in front of the rear wheel. These are marked with triangular sections of the body stamping. Never use the tire changing jack for anything other than that. If you intend to use this guide to perform your own maintenance, a good scissors or a small hydraulic jack and two sturdy jackstands would be a wise purchase. Always chock the wheels when changing a tire or working beneath the car. It cannot be overemphasized. CLIMBING UNDER A CAR SUPPORTED BY JUST THE JACK IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!

A jack can be safely placed just forward of or behind the same jacking points used by the tire changing jack. Place the jack on the rocker panel or on the seam, not inside the seam on the floor pan. Lift the car there and fit the jackstand at the normal jacking point.
