The owner's manual will show you the points to place the jack. I suggest a floor jack and jack stands if you will be climbing under the car.

in front of the rear wheels on the frame are two rubber pads for jacking purposes

Front - under the frame each side rear - both sides of the rear axle

A Hyundai Santa Fe is reported by owners to need adapters when using jacks. The jack stands should be placed as directed by the factory on the jacking points.

there is a place for the jack on the sub frame. it looks like a thin lip of metal that runs all the way down the sub frame. look for where it gets thicker and put your jack stand under it, but get it as close to the front of the car as you can.

The best place to jack is directly under the axles.

front or back and what are you doing? if it is just to store you can use the jack points on the frame.

place jack under vehicle just to the rear of the front tire's. Jack vehicle up using the frame of the vehicle. *Important* place jack stands under vehicle. I place them under the lower control arm's or on the frame (be sure to use stands that will support the weight of your vehicle). if unsure of the weight, there should be a vehicle identification tag on the driver's door jam that will tell you GVW (gross vehicle weight) on most vehicles. In the rear (if rear wheel drive) jack vehicle up by using the rear differential. When looking under the vehicle it will be the mass of iron centerly located between the rear tires. Again *Important* Use jack stands to support load of vehicle. place jack stands on the rear axle tube's and there u go!!

Raise the Intrepid. Lift up on the front jack point with the floor jack. Use the front jacking point behind the radiator. Place jack stands under the pinch welds on either side of the vehicle's body underneath the front doors. Then lower the Intrepid onto the stands.

The best way to lift the front of a Vehicle to work on it is to use a trolley jack. With a trolley jack , make sure you use the jack stands just in case the jack slips. You wouldn't want to be crushed.

There are marks on the frame for this. Either behind the front wheels, or in front of the rear wheels.

Jack the car up in the back. You will need a trolley jack for this job. Use jack stands under the body of the car, you can use 6x6 wood blocks also, use jack stands under the diff. Now, car body is on blocks, and diff in on jack stands, remove the lower bolt for the shocks, with the trolley jack remove the jack stands on the diff, and lower the diff. just enough so that you can pull the coil springs out.

Yes. Never work under a vehicle with only a hydraulic jack supporting the vehicle.

Loosen front lug nuts, raise front of vehicle with a floor jack, place suitable jack stands under the lower control arms, lower vehicle down on to the jack stands, remove front wheels, unbolt front shocks then remove them. Reverse procedure to install new ones.

User Avatar

The safest place to place jack stands are under the frame. You need to jack the car high enough to keep the tires off the ground especially if you plan on working on the breaks or axles. Keep them away from the car WHILE lifting but place under the FRAME once the car is elevated.

User Avatar

This is NOT a job for the untrained. First make sure it's as empty as it can be. Then you will need to have the car on a lift. Once it's in the air you will be able to see the bolts that hold it up. Place Jack Stands under it and lower to the jack stands. You'll need help!

1. Jack up the front end, and place it on jack stands. Always place it on jack stands. 2. Remove the lug nuts using a breaker bar/impact wrench 3. Pull the rim off the wheel studs To put it back on- 1. Align the wheel studs with the holes in the rim 2. Lift and place the rim on the wheel studs 3. Put the lug nuts back on and turn 2-3 times 4. Tighten using a torque stick/ torque wrech in a star pattern 5. Place jack under it and remove jackstands 6. Lower
