- Difficulty Level:
1. Position the lift pads (A) under the vehicle's front support points (B) and rear support points (C).
Be sure the lift pads are properly placed to avoid damaging the vehicle.
NOTE: If you are going to remove heavy components such as suspension or the fuel tank from the rear of the vehicle, first support the front of the vehicle with tall safety stands. When substantial weight is removed from the rear of the vehicle, the centre of gravity can change, causing the vehicle to tip forward on the lift.
2. Raise the lift a few inches, and rock the vehicle gently to be sure it is firmly supported.
3. Raise the lift to its full height, and inspect the vehicle support points for solid contact with the lift pads.
To support the vehicle on safety stands, use the same support points as for a vehicle lift. Always use safety stands when working on or under any vehicle that is supported only by a jack.
1. When lifting the front of the vehicle, set the parking brake. When lifting the rear of the vehicle, put the shift lever in reverse (M/T model) or P (CVT model).
2. Block the wheels that are not being lifted.
3. Position the floor jack under the front jacking bracket (A) or the rear jacking bracket (B). Centre the jacking bracket on the jack lift platform (C), and jack up the vehicle high enough to fit the safety stands under it.
Be sure the floor jack is properly placed to avoid damaging the vehicle.
4. Position the safety stands under the support points, and adjusts them so the vehicle is level side-to-side.
5. Lower the vehicle onto the stands.
