Does anyone know if theres a centre middle jack point under the 2007 Mazda3 or 2017 mazda6? Even if there was, can you get the jack under and still be able to jack it up?

I looked under the Mazda6 and theres a massive plastic skid plate under the engine bay area so how am I supposed to jack the front end up at the same time?

This is for a 2014 Mazda 6. 2007 Mazda 3 is the same. I assume 2017 is similar too. You use the front crossmember. No way the Arcan is reaching that. Probably not the one I posted either. Maybe something like the one below will work, but that'll run you $500-$1000. Not a DIY friendly design at all from Mazda. For comparison, my Accord and Altima both use the radiator support which is like 2ft back from the bumper. The Mazda front jack point looks like it's 4+ft back.

Every car has a jack point that is meant to be used with the jack it came with, usually just behind the fronts and in front of the rears. Use that to get the car up a bit on one wheel so you can have a look for a good central jack point. I probably shouldn't need to say this, but don't stick any part of your body under the car while doing this and make sure it's on a flat stable surface, with the other tires blocked. If you cant find a central point, i.e. something you can use for the entire front end, then you may have to go with each tire individually.

Thanks, I thought there might have been a way to do it without a second jack. Doesn't it defeat the purpose of jacking up the center point if I have to jack up the side anyways to locate the center position?

I asked at Costco Warden and she told me no stores have it.
Markham east store had 38 Torin ones as of yesterday.
I just ordered the Arcam and there are 17 more at the time of this post.
Is it still $149.99 or $129.99 in Markham!??

Picked up the Torin for 129. The extra few inches of lift height make all the difference to me. Size matters, except in weight this thing is heavy!

Kanata location in Ottawa

I wanted a hotdog and pop but obviously they are shutdown :(

My owners manual details the front and rear central jacking points. Is yours too low to see them or to slide under and locate them?

I'm just suggesting to use the side jack point to have a better look underneath to locate a single jack point, so no second jack required. What kind of car is it? I'm sure there's information out there about what a good central jack point is (or if it doesn't have one) regardless of the make\model. For both of our vehicles, there is a tow point which doubles as the jack point.

Thanks for this - the Arcan, not the Torin right?. Was there still a couple more there?
