Correction...Floor Jack

I guess I wasn't clear at first. I meant the hydraulic jack point.

There are four, two behind the front wheels and two in front of the front wheels. It's in your owner's manual.

Unless you mean FLOOR jacks. If so, those jack points can easily be found by using the search function both here and at Bimmer.org.

If you still can't find it...

Well, those are the same black plastic suqares that were mentioned in the other thread.

And yes, they are what the dealers use with their above-ground post lifts.

Didn't see his other post...

When he said "hydraulic lifts" I think of bottle jacks (hydraulic based) which uses those same lift points, or the giant hydraulic lifters dealership uses (what you mentioned?) that also uses the same lift points.

I have the vague feeling that he's thinking of floor jacks, but can't be for certain. Sure wouldn't want him to be using a bottle jack on one of those floor jack points.

What difference does it make what kind of jack you use? It doesn't. And it doesn't make a difference if its a BMW or a Hummer

I not talking about a type of floor jack. All I want to know is where is the jack point on the frame.

Exactly. Look at all the answers you've already gotten.

Ah, why didn't you say so?

Okay, you REALLY need to SEARCH the archives both here and at .org man. I've answered this more times than I can count.

There's a small round protrusion on the front axel, on the subframe reinforcement plate that should fit nicely into the cup of a floor jack.

The rear can be lifted on a U shaped reinforcement in front of the rear differential. It's all pretty elementary really, if you want to lift the entire front or the back of the car up, lift at the CENTER of each axel.

Thanks...Hack I am sure you answered alot of these questions more than what's needed. As a new bimmer owner, your help is much appreciated.
I will probably have more questions to ask along the way, but I will try to be more specific next time. Thanks again!!!
