Ensuring the jacking of all four corners


Recommended Posts

I want to independently replace the oil for the first time, and concurrently, I intend to do tyre rotation, given that the odometer indicates a mileage of 10,000 miles. I own a single floor jack and two stands that I have used on each successive vehicle to secure all four corners. However, I am unable to determine the proper procedure for raising all four corners of this vehicle due to the presence of protruding fins at the rear centre jack point, potentially affecting the differential. It is imperative that I avoid causing any harm to the differential or the fins themselves. I have not yet had the opportunity to locate the front centre jack point, hence I cannot provide any information on that matter. Has anybody successfully dismantled all four corners of their CX-90? I am now experiencing difficulty in efficiently rotating the tyres without the need to raise a minimum of three corners. I would much appreciate your feedback!

This diagram is derived from a Mazda Service Alert that advises against using a flat lift on a Phev vehicle because to the potential hanging of the electric vehicle battery and other components. It specifies the need for spacers on the side lift points. Additionally, it displays Jack's points. Left rear differential. Please be aware that I have not used these centre points, but rather captured a few close-up photographs.

Thank you for providing this information. I was in need of the locations of the front and rear centre points.
My vehicle is a mhev, so I don't have to worry about the batteries. However, the pinch weld spots at the four corners are far closer than the photo indicates, and there is a significant amount of plastic around them. I purchased rubber pinch weld protectors from Amazon, which proved to be effective in my experimental lift setup.
I do not have the same problem as the original poster, since mine is rotated during the winter exchanges. However, it would be desirable to do two tasks with a single lift.

The location of the rear centre lift point is peculiar, since it appears to be associated with the rear differential rather than a flat area.
I will inquire with my dealer service manager on their recommendations.

Thank you for your feedback. I own the rubber pads, nevertheless, I will need to attempt using my jack stands. As a precautionary measure, I will use jack stands to elevate the front of the vehicle, while using a floor jack to raise the back section individually. Indeed, I am also apprehensive about the back central jack point.

Excellent, I appreciate you for sharing the photographs! I have located the front central jacking point and there is no need to be concerned about it. Regarding the back, it may be inferred that the two thicker fins are the location where the jack would be positioned centrally.
