Hey

I know there are a lot of other threads on jacking points and Ive been looking through these but cannot find the jacking point for the tourer. Its probably totally obvious but I can't seem to find it. :frown2:

Looking at the service manual the front bracket is marked by a large cut out in the engine under tray. Also looking at the engine under trays for other versions there is a clear cut-out for the front jacking bracket just to the rear of the metal sump-guard / cover.

However on my tourer there is not an obvious cut out like in other under-trays. I've tried to take a picture of the under tray and the closest I can find to the front jacking bracket is this, however Im not sure.

Any help/pointers greatly appreciated.

Brilliant, thanks! :smile3:

I can see on this the rear centre jacking bracket (the tow loop) but there does not seem to be a similar centre one for the front (I could easily be missing something ?)

Looks like the Type R has this front jacking bracket

Hi, I too have a tourer, 2014 petrol and I also would like to know if there is a front jacking point at the front other than the ones on the sill.
Previously I had a MK8 Accord and there was one which was very handy.

Yeah, its a shame its not clear as Im not sure where to put the axel stand.

The under tray covers most/all of the sub-frame. There is one bolt exposed just behind the wheel which could work.

Wondering if its better to try jack on that bolt and then use the stands on the side lifting points.

I asked when getting tyre puncture repaired how best to do this at front. Rear obviously rear tow hook then stands under jacking points on sills. Front he pointed to a point underneath that at moment I don't have a photo of to jack up with then use sills for stands. When next in car I'll try and get a decent shot to see what people think.

I need the rest of that repair manual so much !!!:surprise:
Where do I get the (digital) copy of that?
It's paid access unfortunately, from the honda maris.
If you pay for an hour, you can run in and grab and save as many files as possible

Have a look under 9g general, there is a link for the general file share of everything that I extracted.

The jacking point is present in the centre of all mk9 civics. Just for some reason the euro version doesn't have the cutout in the underside plastic trays. But it's the same cross beam you want to put the jack on.

From the top look down the front of the engine block, right of the exhaust and paste the big silver pipe. You're looking for the bracket with 2 holes in it. Put the jack there and you should be fine.

I used a block of ply just to avoid chewing up the plastic. You can then either put axle stands under the towing hooks, or under the sill jacking points.

Note: I used a standard 2 tonne jack. It goes under fine, and raises enough to get the wheels of easily. Ideally I would use a jack with a higher lift to get the car upa but more. But overall it's a very easy car to jack up at the front.
