Does anyone have information on where the jack-points are on the Energi?  Couldn't find any information in the owner's manual.  Picked up a screw in the tire and need to remove it to get patched.

You'll have to get down on your knees to see the small triangle indicators imprinted into the bottom plastic panel.  See pic:

NOTE:  picture was a test of the hydraulic jack which won't fit underneath with a flat tire.  Had to get a screwjack to carry in the car.  At home, I use a HD floor jack and lift about a foot forward of the B-piller to raise both wheels at the same time for tire rotations.

Thanks fotomoto!  Sure enough, found the triangles and I have safely lifted the car!  Thanks again for taking the time to post the photo; you rock!

Hey!  Get over to your forum and leave us alone!  :smile2:  However, since you're here, another tip I am using to spare my bad back is to just run one's fingers along the bottom and you can feel the little triangle.  Start at each wheel-well to minimize dirt on the fingers.

 

BTW, I'm happy with my screw-jack that replaced the hydraulic one that wouldn't fit (both from harbor freight) but I noticed in Wal-Mart the other day that they had a really low hydraulic that "might" work.

Thanks Doug, I for one appreciate you crossing into Energi territory.  I had no idea there were arrows pointing to the lift locations.   :smile2:
