Jack one side at a time. Place your jack under the lower control arm, or if it won't go under on a frame rail and lift from there. You may need to use some blocking to get the car high enough if you jack at a frame rail.
Jacking on the transaxle housing puts you at high risk of doing some very expensive damage. That housing is either aluminum or white metal. They don't bend like steel, they just break. Hope this helps.

Probably best to do one side at a time, there is a frame underneath the passenger and drivers sides that you can jack up on, or you can jack up on the pinchweld located behind the tires, though probably best to go on the frame.
Then use jackstands, and should work good. or can just do one side at a time.

Hi all how do i use the jack of a 1997 318i bmw on the back wheel that is flat


Hi, BMW's have a jacking point. If you are looking at the back wheel, look along the side skirts under the back passenger door. There will be a small disc with a horizontal hole. Use a screw driver to turn the disc until it comes out, that is your jacking point.

Place the jack's horizontal arm all the way into the jacking point and start to wind the jack handle. The car will then start to rise at the back. The same prinicple appplies for the front as well, the fronts jacking point is on the skirting under the front doors.

2004 tiburon : front jacking points?


The official front jacking points are on the reinforced edge of the unit body, just behind the front wheels.

If you're using a hydraulic jack, you can jack the front of the car from the front tow hook, place your axle stands under the front jack points, then let the car down onto the axle stands.

Always use axle stands when working on your car, never trust the jack alone.

Where do i find the starter motor in my audi a4 w reg


this is info i pulled but not sure exactly what engine you have...here are a couple though
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



Fig. After the negative battery cable is disconnected, remove the wire terminals from the starter solenoid



Fig. Remove the lower starter mounting bolts . . .



Fig. . . . followed by the upper bolt, then remove the starter from the transaxle housing



0900c152800c2ab1.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Lower starter bolt locations-1994 2.0L, 2.0L ABA



0900c152800c2ab2.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Remove the upper starter bolts



Fig. Mark the location and length of each starter bolt

Fig. When the solenoid is energized the starter drive is pushed out and meshes with the flywheel to crank the engine
  1. Note the radio security code, and then disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. If installed, remove the lower engine shield.
NOTE
The engine must be supported on 1990-97 Passat models as the starter mounting bolts also support the engine-to-transmission mounting surface. If necessary, label the small wires before disconnecting them.

On 1990-97 Passat models:

  1. To support the weight of the engine and transaxle, install the engine support Tool Nos. 10-222A and 10-222A/1, or use a floor jack (with a block of wood on the chock) to support the engine by the oil pan. Do NOT jack the car by the oil pan under any circumstances! The floor jack is ONLY to support the engine while the starter is being removed. This is necessary because the bolts that secure the starter to the transaxle are also used to secure the front engine mount to the transaxle.
  2. Disconnect the large cable, which is the positive battery cable, from the solenoid.
  3. If equipped, remove the bracket that secures the starter to the engine. On Audi A4 and 1998-00 Passat models:

Release the number 50 electrical connector from the starter.

  1. Then remove the nut for the large battery cable and remove the cable.
  2. Loosen then remove the clamp that secures the heat shield to the starter.
  3. Remove the fasteners securing the bracket at the front of the starter and remove the bracket.

Remove the starter mounting bolts, while supporting the weight of the starter.

  1. Pull the starter straight out from the transaxle. To install:
NOTE
On vehicles with a manual transaxle, there is a bushing where the starter shaft fits into the bell housing. If the shaft or bushing is worn or if the starter has been jamming, the bushing should be replaced. There is a special bushing removal tool available but a small inside bearing removal tool is usually sufficient.
Install the starter into the transaxle.

  1. Tighten the related starter motor fasteners as follows:
  2. Starter support bracket, M5 nut: 35 inch lbs. (4 Nm)
  3. Starter support bracket, M8: 16 ft. lbs. (22Nm)
  4. Battery cable to solenoid, M8 nut:10 ft. lbs. (13Nm)
  5. hydraulic hose support bracket, M8: 84 inch lbs. (10Nm)
  6. Starter mounting fasteners, M10: 44 ft. lbs. (60 Nm)
  7. Starter mounting fasteners, M12: 48 ft. lbs. (65 Nm)
  8. The balance of the installation is in reverse order of removal
