Jacking Points?

Recommended Posts

Where's the jacking points on our cars? I didn't see any that shouted out at me, so I just lifted from submember the other day? Is that ok? What about TV links? As for rear, is it ok to jack on the rear diff? Not something I'd normally do...

I am pretty sure you shouldn't jack on the rear diff due to the strain it puts on the rubber diff mounts, I stand to be corrected, but when I tried it I didn't like the amount of movement the diff did before it lifted the car

Rear diff is the subaru recommended point, and at the front there's a small metal cross member just after the under tray which is the lift point for the front end

Both my front side skirt jackin points have been squashed and pushed up a bit at the front, I presume from someone using a trolley jack with no rubber on the lifting plate, so be careful how and with what you jack it up there

I jacked rear up today with diff, was a revelation !

Going to try this...did you use something on the jack to cushion it a bit? I tried to grab some foam from work but there wasn't any so I grabbed a few sticky pad things to put all over the plate...usually see people do it with wood...

I asked the seller to cut the slot 14mm wide (rather than 10) to make sure it fitted......fits a treat

Evening all

Would a suitable jack point for my Classic be just beyond the sump, basically silverish metal part with the 2 bolts....see pic

Thanks

Yes you can use the trolly jack on that plate.
