There are velcro straps in there, so I would assume...

I know it sounds trivial, but can someone post a step-by-step DIY (with pics) on how to place this particular car (SUV) on jackstands?
Like the whole 4 corners on jackstands.
It seems I am not the only one having difficulties with this.


This. :?

I'm going to replace the front brakes and need a picture of where/how to place a jack stand if I'm using designated jacking location with the supplied emergency jack. Thanks.

Some Photos of the Factory installed lifting points direct from the owners guide.

Rear passengers side. The flouroscent orange area is where the jack pad rests on. Drivers side similiar.

I have a question about raising the front end of the vehicle. There is a short, fairly beefy looking piece of U beam that is located rearward of the engine/transaxle (4 cylinder 2005 Escape) that looks sturdy enough to place the cradle of a floor jack underneath and raise up the vehicle. Does anyone know if this angle iron is structurally sound enough to use as a jacking point? I have included a photo of the prospective lift point.

you can also get some additional lifting (and scuff prevention) but using a hockey puck between the lifting head and your lifting point!

Hey Squishy are your images for the 2003? I looked at Alldata and the 09 seems different (either that or they didnt include good enough images).

have any of you really looked at the underside of your Escape-
have you thought about what you see as to what you want your jack under
2,000lb jack- would mean it could exert 2,000lbs on your flimsy unibody and possibly crush the area of contact

I always add wood between the jack & the----------- not frame as we old timers know these vehicles are way fragile
