I was wondering where are the spots i can safely jack the car up using one of these jacks because the user manual only tells you where to use the old style bumper jacks.
Please can you tell me spots for the front and the back. Thanks heaps
The maintenance manual should show you. There is most likely a plate just in front of the leaf springs that was designed a lifting point.
If the scissor jack has a ball on the top it is probably inappropriate. I would imagine that you need a jack with a flat top.
