Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Lifting point

Special Service Tool

The actual shapes of Kent-Moore tools may differ from those of special service tools illustrated here.

CAUTION: • Every time the vehicle is lifted up, maintain the complete vehicle curb condition.

• Since the vehicle's center of gravity changes when removing main parts on the front side (engine, transmission, suspension etc.), support a jack up point on the rear side garage jack with a transmission jack or equivalent.

• Since the vehicle's center of gravity changes when removing main parts on the rear side (rear axle, suspension, etc.), support a jack up point on the front side garage jack with a transmission jack or equivalent.

• Be careful not to smash or do anything that would affect piping parts.

Garage Jack and Safety Stand

WARNING: • Park the vehicle on a level surface when using the jack. Make sure to avoid damaging pipes, tubes, etc. under the vehicle.

• Never get under the vehicle while it is supported only by the jack. Always use safety stands when you have to get under the vehicle.

• Place wheel chocks at both front and back of the wheels on the ground.

• Lift at reinforced area of front suspension member where lower control arm attaches, staying in center line of wheels.

2-Pole Lift

WARNING: When lifting the vehicle, open the lift arms as wide as possible and ensure that the front and rear of the vehicle are well balanced.

When setting the lift arm, do not allow the arm to contact the brake tubes, brake cable, fuel lines and sill spoiler.

Board-on Lift

CAUTION: Make sure vehicle is empty when lifting.

• The board-on lift attachment (LM4086-0200) set at front end of vehicle should be set on the front of the sill under the front door opening.

• Position attachments at front and rear ends of board-on lift.
