WARNING

Lifting your vehicle incorrectly with a lifting platform or vehicle jack can cause accidents and serious personal injury:
  • Always read and heed the operating instructions from the lifting platform or vehicle jack manufacturer and any legal regulations before lifting the vehicle.
  • All occupants should leave the vehicle before it is lifted.
  • The vehicle should only be lifted at those points indicated in the illustrations   and  . If the vehicle is not lifted at the points shown, it could fall off the lifting platform when work is carried out, for example, when the engine or gearbox is removed.
  • The vehicle jacking points must be placed on the centre of the support surfaces of the vehicle lift and have as much contact as possible.
  • Never start the engine when the vehicle is raised! The vibration of the engine could cause the vehicle to fall off the lifting point.
  • If work has to be carried out underneath the lifted vehicle, secure the vehicle with suitable jack stands with a sufficient load-bearing capacity.
  • Never climb up the lifting platform.
  • Always ensure that the vehicle is not heavier than the lifting capacity of the lifting platform.

NOTICE

  • Never lift the vehicle on the engine oil sump, the gearbox or the front or rear axle.
  • To prevent damage to the underside of the vehicle when lifting, rubber pads must be used. Make sure that the lifting platform arms are able to move freely.
  • The lifting platform arms must not be allowed to come into contact with the sills or any other part of the vehicle.
