Default Jack Point for raising the Fit?

Changing the oil for the first time in my new Fit. I don't see any lift point (i.e. front crossmember) for my floor jack. Rear tow hook is present though

Where have you guys lifted up the front with a floor jack?...or am I just limited to lifting behind each front wheel (PITA).

I like to raise all four wheels off the ground and rotate tires when changing oil.

Thanks

Thanks! I thought that was the case, but didnt remove any of the plastic splashguards under the bumper/radiator to take a super close inspection.

Very cool 07ssmfit96! - bonus points for the Helm's manual diagram

Guess I should have taken off the splashguards and taken a closer look!

I've used the rear tow hook to jack mine up before (not for an oil change obviously) and it worked well.

Maybe it's just my jack, but I can't comfortable get to that front point on the lower rad. support.

When doing an oil change I always raise the vehicle on the driver's side. Be sure to use jack stands while you are under the car.

i've got the small plastic rhino ramps, and even my lowered 86 fits on them. but i don't know about the fit. the front over-hang is a lot. if i set it up right, it should be able to go on them. (slightly sloped driveway. i can play with approach angles)

I use my Rhino ramps with my sport but, I have 4 2x4's that are stair-stepped to raise it high enough to clear the lip.

Takata LDS wheel ramps for lowered cars. The wheel ramps are made by out dated and recycled Takata harnesses, no joke! I need to buy me a set of these before they are all gone...
