1.6.7. Car lifting


Never it is impossible to lift or поддомкрачивать the car, having established a jack under an oil case of the engine, a transmission, a forward axis or the back bridge. It can lead to serious damage of the car.

Jack, also as well as the lift, it is necessary to establish under special points of lifting. Not to damage the body bottom, it is necessary to put rubber laying between a jack and lifting points.

Car lifting by means of the hydraulic lift and a jack.

Check, that levers of the lift were lowered before calling in rather low on the lift, especially, if on the car the low forward spoiler is established.

The car is necessary for lifting, having established lift levers only in the points of lifting shown on illustrations.


At removal of such units of the car as the engine, a transmission, a fuel tank, wheels, a forward axis or the back bridge, fix the car on levers of the lift or add additional weight to keep balance. Otherwise the car can bend and slide off lift levers that will lead to serious damages or traumas.

To reduce risk of receiving a trauma and car damage, lift the car only by means of firm stationary lifts and establish lift levers in special points of lifting. If you establish lift levers in other points, it can lead to that the car to bend and will slide off the lift at removal of heavy units, such as, for example, the engine or a transmission as at their removal balance of the car is broken.

 If you lifted the car by means of a jack and it is necessary for you to work under the car bottom, reliably prop up the car by means of the racks which have been specially made for this purpose.
