How to put P3 xc70 on jack stands?

Post by Anthari » Wed Jul 03, 2019 1:31 am

I've been working on my RWD VOlvos a while ago, and now it seems that I am going to be taking care of my 11'xc70 myself again. With 740 I would use front cross-member and differential as lifting points for the floor jack, and then jack stands would go under the frame runners under the car. How is it done in P3 ?
I did a forum search, but didn't seem to get a clear answer to that. Owner's manual is fuzzy, and VIDA mentions "Special tools" that look like some rubber cylinders.
1) What is a good place to put a floor jack in the front and in the rear? Cross members? Frame runners?
2) What are the good places for the jacks? Owner manual shows some areas behind the front wheels, but nothing in the rear?
