BMW X3 Service & Repair Manual: Raising vehicle with trolley jack

Observe the following trolley-jack-related instructions:

1. Only trolley jacks sold or approved by BMW, with a rubber plate on their mounting, may be used! 2. Trolley jacks must be regularly serviced and always checked for functional reliability before they are used! 3. Check the rubber plate on the trolley jack prior to each use, replacing if necessary.

IMPORTANT: All-wheel drive vehicles may only be raised with the stiffening plate fitted on the front axle! Raising directly on the front axle support without stiffening plate is not permissible!

WARNING: The vehicle may be raised with a trolley jack only at the following mounting point!

  1. Car jacking point
  2. Side car jacking points
