FLOOR JACK

  1. Set parking brake. Block wheels that are not going to be lifted. When lifting rear of vehicle, place transmission in Reverse (MT) or Park (AT). See figure.
  2. Place floor jack lift platform under lift bracket to raise vehicle. Front lift bracket is located under vehicle, on cross/center beam. Rear lift bracket is located under center of vehicle, left of muffler. Place safety stands on reinforced support points of side body panels (between front and rear wheels).

EMERGENCY JACKING
Place manufacturer-supplied jack on reinforced support points of side body panels (between front and rear wheels).

HOISTWhen removing heavy rear components such as suspension, fuel tank, spare tire or tailgate, vehicle center of gravity may change and cause vehicle to tip forward on hoist.

  1. On all Honda models except Accord, when removing heavy rear components such as suspension, fuel tank, spare tire or tailgate, place additional weight in trunk of vehicle before hoisting. Placing front wheel/tire assembly in cargo area can assist with weight distribution. On Accord, when removing heavy rear components such as suspension, fuel tank or spare tire, place tall safety stands under front of vehicle after hoisting.
  2. Place lift blocks on reinforced support points of side body panels (between front and rear wheels). These are same points as used with manufacturer-supplied jack. Lift hoist a few inches and rock vehicle to ensure vehicle is firmly supported. Completely lift vehicle and check for proper vehicle support.
