Looking for jack lift points

Recommended Posts

Gearing up for my first tire rotation on my new to me 2018 Edge AWD Titanium.

The owners manual indicates there are "arrows" that show the lift points,

 

"9. The vehicle jacking points are depicted
by arrows on the underside of the
vehicle at the locations shown above."

 

I'm not finding the arrows that indicate the lift points.

 

The second question is the rotation pattern. The manual clearly states that for FWD and AWD vehicle use this pattern.

There is another post that states for AWD vehicles you must use an X pattern where LR to RF and RR to LF.  RF to LR and RR to LF.
 

"On four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles, the recommended rotation pattern is a “Double X” so the right front and left rear tires switch positions as do the left front and right rear."

Thanks for any help.

I have a floor jack and used the solid portion with the bolts just behind the fender well

Ok found the arrows.

Took a bit of scrubbing!

 

New problem - I took a piece of 4x4 and cut an indentation in it.

But when i jacked up the car using the 4x4 it split the 4x4.

Any suggestions on what to use?

 

thanks.

Thanks, I'll try that.

What about the rear wheel?

For the rear, it wasn't as reinforced, but you are lifting much less weight.  So I still put in on the rail close to the fender well.

If you're using a floor jack get one of these https://amzn.to/2PQCyIV . 

The slot fits over the pinch weld and adds a small amount of padding too.  If you have a hockey puck laying around just cut a slot in it....freebie!

Ok, thanks that's great I have the lift points and the hockey puck for the jack,

 

How do I lift the vehicle at the lift points then replace the jack with jack stands?

 

The list points don't seem wide enough to allow for both the jack and jack stand.

 

Thanks

I usually find a frame rail or solid point where the suspension mounts to when I place my jack stands.  So while they are close to the jack, they are further in than the jacking rails
