Jacking points for trolley jack


Recommended Posts

I've just got myself a trolley jack for changing my wheels over but not sure where the best place is to lift the car, can you put it in a place that will allow both wheels on one side to be lifted or do you just lift in the same way as an OEM jack and do one wheel at a time?

As above, jack puck and the folded seams is the way to go (but even with a puck the seams are still not the most robust so make sure you get the jack lifting pad/puck centred)     There's no

IIRC when I lifted high enough from the front jacking point the back wheel also came off the ground (2017 R wagon).

There's not enough space for the jack + axle stands at the jacking points but if you look at this thread it shows where you can position the axle stands.  I've used these locations a few times and no issues.

When I use a trolly jack (I have a very low one) I always try and get it under a suspension mount on the front or the rear, I know it will probably be ok under the sill where it is marked, however 

Those marks are also for lifting with a 2 post ramp with 4 arms/pads which equals the weight out between all 4 more than one trolley jack does,  the trolly jack will not sit square on the sill as the car lifts at one end first
