Q: Mounts for safe jacking the car up

asked by on

On the sub-frame of my car, there are circular cuffs with the bolt in the middle. Somebody told me these are body mounts. I'm just wondering if these are the mounts to safely jack the car up?

Yes, that is what they are for. A lot of German cars have them. They are made so that you can jack them up at these safe points and not worry about anything bending or slipping. That’s where you’ll want to put the jack. They are deliberately made that way.
