New CLK 430 Owner - needs help with jack points
My wife wanted to try a convertible and found a nice deal on a 2003 CLK 430 Cabriolet. Very nice car. I am now trying to learn how to help her support her "habit" by getting some advice on taking care of it. things like cleaning the soft top properly (not too bad), changing to snows...I bought a floor jack to make it easy for the 2X a year chore but finding the service jack points is ridiculous. The emergency jack set up is for, well, emergencies. If I have to take it in for every service issue this sweet ride will be for sale soon. Since she likes the car so much I need some help and this looks like the place to get it.
If any one has a suggestion on the safe way to use a floor jack on a CLK 430 speak up please. I bought a Norco 2 1/4 ton floor jack because it was well reviewed as a safe jack. The only potential jack point I can find is directly below the emergency jack point and direcly behind the side skirt (standard, not AMG) but that looks like it could slip off.
Thanks for any help!
