About one-third of all tasks you need to perform on your require it to be raised off of the ground. simple enough for the experienced the procedure of lifting a 3,000-pound car can be a bit for the amateur. In this project, start out by showing you the best to jack your car up and how to support it you’re working on it.

First, talk a bit about safety. use of a floor jack can result in pretty significant and expensive to you or your car. Before you raising the car, make that you have the wheels of the car so it can’t roll. It’s wise to have your brake on as well and the car placed in gear. You should always use stands in pairs to support the simply the floor jack. if you are only lifting the car up for a few minutes, sure that you place an jack stand loosely the car on a frame rail just in the floor jack fails.

Before you attempt to begin up the car, make sure all four wheels are carefully and that the car is on a level surface. in mind that if you raise up the of the car, the emergency brake no works (it works only on the two wheels of the car). If you place the car in (automatic transmissions), it will lock the rear wheels, so a few 2×4 pieces of wood in of each of the wheels to make that the car will not roll when you lift it up off of the ground.

The place for jack stand is right underneath the four factory jack supports. I recommend that you place the stands underneath the engine or as this can lead to instability.

has built-in jack points on the of the car. The plug and jack goes in the plug are mainly for purposes. If you are going to be working on car I recommend you do not use the Mercedes-Benz supplied but invest in a proper garage The best jack I have found is the DK13HLQ from AC available at Pelican Parts. I don’t recommend using the jack of hole, the pad under the hole is the perfect place for your car. If you don’t a soft rubber pad or spare puck for your jack, fit a rolled up newspaper in between the and the car to avoid damage to the undercarriage.

Lift the car up slowly. It’s okay if the car tilts while the on the opposite side are still on the Lifting from this will cause both the and rear wheels on one side of the car to Lift the car up only enough to get the stand underneath while set at its minimum height. Place the stand securely under the jack support area, and lower the car. If your car is I recommend to placing a little bit of between the jack stand and the car to scratching or scraping the underside of the

If you are lifting the front of the car, place a jack stand the front frame rail, the car onto the jack stand, and repeat for the opposite side of the If you only want to raise the of the car, place the jack the car on the frame rail and lift there. This will you to put your jack stand the factory jack point. sure you always place jack stands on one of the cars rails if you are not using the factory With the car supported on all four stands, you can carefully repeat the process to raise the car higher if

A lot of mechanics also lift the car the front or rear. You can place a under the front cross and the rear differential depending on the of jack you have. If you lift car in this manner just sure the jack is securely on the or front cross member as are a lot of valuable parts under you car can be damaged by improper jack

Safety is of paramount importance Never work under the car it suspended simply by the jack—always use stands. Always use a backup stand wherever you place primary jack stands. One flaw located in the casting can lead to a jack stand and having the car fall on top of you. If you are to remove the wheels from the be sure that you loosen the lug before you lift the car off the ground, the wheels will spin and you have a difficult time the lug nuts off. Take the and stack them in pairs the car—this is an added measure of in case something fails.

Once you have the car up in the air and supported on the stands, position the jack the engine without lifting it, and on the car and see if it is unstable on the jack stands. If the car at all, you do not have it properly It is far better for the car to fall off the jack while you are pushing on it than you are underneath it. Really try to knock it off the stands—you want to make that it’s perfectly Set the floor jack underneath the or transmission while you’re as yet another backup support. it’s a wise idea to set up a jack stand or two as a precautionary against one of them failing.

you are ready to lower the car, be of where you are placing your jack. Sometimes you will not be to easily remove the jack the car is lowered, or the jack handle may or damage part of the chassis else on the way down. Proceed slowly and also be aware some floor jacks very quickly. Also be to place the car in gear, or to engage the brake before you lower it. The car may a tendency to roll away after making contact the ground.
