Jack stand locations for 323i ?
I want to jack up the front end of my 2000 323i sedan and place jack stands under the vehicle so that I can inspect (and maybe work on) the suspension and steering. In anticipation of this, I jacked up one front corner the other day and took a quick look. My short inspection revealed no good location for a jack stand. There are several flat spots that look somewhat like frame rails, but I suspect that they are just part of the belly pan are are not capable of supporting the weight of the car. I noticed that the body panel under the door, the rocker panel, has several screws along it's lower portion that might hold it in place. Is there a frame rail that will provide a location for a jack stand that this body panel covers?
