Lifting the vehicle

The vehicle can be raised at various jacking points. These jacking points are specially reinforced and can accommodate the vehicle without deforming the underbody. The vehicle must always be positioned at the four outer jacking points -A- first. The four inner jacking points -B- can be used for carrying out repairs around the side members.
