Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

You'll see on the rocker panel, there's a small arrow, this indicates where the jackpoint is on the pinch weld under the vehicle, so we'll place our jack under there. Bring the vehicle up until the wheel is off the ground and we have enough height to get a jack stand underneath the car.

Directly in front of your jack, you'll notice this box to frame-like piece of the uni-body, that's the point we're going to use for our jack stand. Slowly lower the vehicle onto the stand. You'll find the same arrow on all four corners of the vehicle, set your jack under that arrow and bring the vehicle up to the same height as the front. You want to keep the vehicle level once it's on the stands.

In front we've brought our jackstand up one click, so we'll want to make sure we're at the same height in the back. We have a subframe in the back here where we'll place our other jack stand. This is actually a little bit higher on the vehicle than the front is, so we'll make sure the vehicle looks level, and lower onto this stand. Repeat these steps on the opposite side.

The front of our vehicle came up with the rear when we jacked it up on this side, so we'll go ahead and install our stand under the front as well. Again, you want to make sure that all four corners match, so we are one click up on the front, three clicks up in the rear. Carefully lower our vehicle onto the stands. Now we can safely work underneath our car.

Jack our vehicle off the stands. Remove the stands from under the vehicle. Lower this side. Repeat these steps on the opposite side of the car. On this side we're going to have to lower this corner of the car and jack up the front to remove our final jack stand.
