Re: Renault Kangoo Jacking Point(s)
I usually jack where the bottom wishbone joins the chassis. Usually a thick flat plate there.
At the rear, where the suspension arm meets the body. Anywhere substantial really. Certainly NOT Sills or Subframes / Crossmembers or anything Aluminium.
Or not anything likely to move as the car lifts.
For instance, lower wishbone is solid and (usually) will take weight.
But jack on it in the wrong place (usually around half way along) and it will tilt as the car lifts, tipping jack sideways.
If at anytime you have to jack or support on chassis/body, spread the load. I keep a couple of 12" x 2" x 4" blocks of wood handy specifically for that. As close to box sections as possible if not on them.
