Ok, I know it must have been discussed somewhere before, but I've checked EVERY thread in the General topics and EVERY thread in the Technical topics of this forum, and since I appear to be blind, I ask, "Where are the jack points on the rear of the Bolt?" I can see the front jack points, but not the rear. I sat in my garage for 45 minutes last night reading the Owners Manual and I am in disbelief that they are not clearly pointed out. In fact, they aren't even mentioned.
If I had roadside assistance come out and they were going to raise the car to take the rear wheel off, I'd like to be sure they jacked it where the car wouldn't be damaged. My dealer didn't know how to answer all my questions when buying this car, so why would anyone expect a service tech to know where all the jack points on every vehicle ever made?
Hard to figure out who could possibly think this information was not important! A simple .pdf that I could print and keep in the glove compartment would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Since the Bolt has self-sealing tires and no spare, GM obviously doesn't think you (or a tow truck driver) need to know where the jack points are.
After doing a brief Google search, I found the following info in Post #52 on the following page in ChevyBolt.org:http://www.chevybolt.org/forum/12-wheel ... ons-6.html
From the pics, the lift point should be obvious. Can't tell if the jack point is near the mid point allowing the entire side of the car to be lifted at the same time or not.
You don't need the recommended scissor jack if you are doing the lifting at home (or even on the road) if you got a small portable floor jack (which isn't much larger than the scissor jack).
Also FWIW if you need a tow, I would ask for a flat bed truck rather than a traditional tow lift truck to avoid any potential damage.
I haven't needed a tow for awhile but asked for a flat bed tow truck just in case I needed one when the battery in my MR2 went dead. Just needed a jump. The battery would not recharge and had to buy a new one the next day.
