    Factory recommended jack points?

    When I bought my 02' , the manual was not included...and I don't wan't to shell out $50 just to figure out where the jack points are...
    In the front (was changing coolant today), I was able to find plenty of good spots to jack and support on...just out of curiousity, I looked in the back, and I'm glad I wasn't looking because I had a flat...I didn't really see anything I'd trust a jack under...
    So where are the jack points?
    Pics would be appreciated if anyone has them...
    Thanks,
    Brian

    but there's varying opinions... and depending on type of jack you're using, different spots

    Yeah...I did a search...they all just say the oem points work well...nowhere shows where these points are...there are a couple places where they say to look at the pics "here" but "here" apparantly no longer exists...
    Found plenty of advice regarding raising the whole front or rear of the car at once, but I don't think that would be the safest way to change a tire on the shoulder of a freeway for instance...
    Could someone please show me where the jacking points are?

    Sorry if I'm being dense here, but I just don't see them...

    Well, if you're changing a tire on the freeway, use the reenforced jack points under the rockers 6 inches or so ahead of the rear wheels, 6 inches or so behind the fronts. Most cars have points for the factory jack in these spots.

    If you're using a floor jack and want to get the rear end up, use a block of wood under the diff.
