    I swear I searched...please tell me where the coupe floor jacking points are?

    I searched and heard 10 different answers, all seem contradictory, or for sedans and wagons. Can someone please tell me where the jack points are for coupes? I just want to clean my wheels and calipers. Thanks in advance team.

    A picture would be fabulous if possible... Thanks again.

    Owners manual is your best source to look that up. It is in section 10 of it.

    After jacking the car from the jack points where would I put the jack stands? Or should I jack the car from another location and place the jack stands under the jacking points? where is another good point to jack from for placing the jack stands?


    I don't see that in the manual!!!!??????

    Says the owner of a 2009 sedan. There are no "v" notches on my coupe. Thanks for the educated response.

    Your welcome! Anyway, look for the solid areas under the floor pan; maybe 3" from each wheel well, and another 6" further. I use a 4" x 4" piece of wood in my floor jack so it sits nice and flat, w/o scratching the underside. This area is behind the rocker panels too in about 6" from the outer edge of the body.
