The only service I had done was at the dealer about a month ago for the 2 recalls and a couple of TSB's. But none of them would require a wheel to be pulled. But who knows, the vehicle was out of my sight so maybe the tech thought he would check for wear on the disc brake pads. But with only 4,600 miles on the vehicle, I doubt they would waste the time to do that.

Re: Floor Jack Lift Points

Interesting thread!

So if I'm, let's say, jacking the rear passenger side, where would I place a jack stand once I have it high enough?

I would rely on straddling the pinch weld since it is used by the factory jack for changing a flat. I would also leave the jack in place and gently lower the GC until it somewhat rested on the jack stand.

Re: Floor Jack Lift Points

For those of you with the HF floor 3 ton jack, how did you approach the pinch weld topic? I have seen a few comments of members who used this jack on their WK2s so I figured you guys could provide some guidance....
