2019 CX-5 AWD Jacking Points?

Anyone know where the front and rear jacking points are? Photos?

I’m planning on installing an Autoexe Lower Arm Brace (Rear). Also, my car has a hitch.

PSA: don't use hockey puck or something similar would happen.

Watched the original video. Owner explained jack didn't fail but the puck slipped.

If you look he is using TWO pucks.. the blue insert directly in the jack and then a hockey puck stacked on top of that.. The blue insert stayed in place, the black hockey puck on top of that did not, it slid off.

notice at 4:21 in the full video that there are two devices on the jack

if you are going to use an insert (to reduce scratches / marring) only use one. You can buy the pre-cut ones... https://tinyurl.com/286nm9k7

If you are saving a few nickels and using the hockey puck method.. only use ONE.

read through the arm chair mechanics comments on the video from 2017.. you can hear the crunching as the pads were compressing [ill fitting] right at the first under load lift pump of the jack. My guess .. he did it for the views (wanted to go viral).... he did finish the video.

he did get it fixed

"no specific jack points.." that is hilarious!

Plus he wasn't paying attention. The entire side of the car was rising, the rear wheel lifted right off the ramp. I would have stopped if I saw what was happening.

I put a hockey puck on the lift point of my floor jack but I secured it by running a countersunk bolt through it. I only use the jack on the jacking points illustrated by yrwei52. One of these days I'll buy the adapters for the pinch weld jacking points.

Why do people use hockey pucks? Are they more accessible than a piece of 2x4? I never had a problem with wood when I needed a spacer, plus it's soft enough that the jack bites into it and doesn't allow it to slip. A hard slippery puck seems like a bad idea...

Most homeowners will have scrap lumber of some sort laying around. Folks who live in an apartment, or similar, may not.

Here are some jack pads that I have found and may help you guys. I've been using #1 for the past 2 - 3 weeks and I haven't had much issues with it. I have the HF Daytona 3 ton jack (square jack pad) and it fits perfectly. As for long term usage and reliability, I can't comment on that but I think #3 & #4 would be the most durable based on the beefiness and size of it. I was about to purchase either one if #1 didn't work out.
  1. Looks like they sold out of the individual pads: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06X9TRYQB/?tag=m20b7-20

But they have hockey pucks and a jack? I'm just saying that if you bought yourself a jack, go thru the extra effort to get the right attachment to use it safely. I've done some questionable auto repairs and would never think to put a hockey puck or some unfamiliar material between the jack and the car.

That video must have been made with the expectation that it would fail.

Agreed. I always use a piece of 2X4 or 2X8 to space between the jack and the jack point, mainly want to protect the metal and / or paint of the jack point. Like DwightFrye, one of these days I'll upgrade it to a thick rubber jack pad for the jack cradle.

Yes, use the "odd looking jack point extension". I've done this many times and it worked perfectly. I used a scrap piece of 2x4 on the floor jack cradle in the past and it works fine. I now have a thick rubber jack pad for the jack cradle but the 2x4 will be fine.
