Sorry for the long post.
I want to send my Leaf over to Wheelworks to rotate my wheels for me. Since Wheelworks isn't a place that is knowledgeable about the Leaf, naturally, I have decided to read up a bit on the Jack Points or "garage lift points" or "garage jack points" information so that I can explain to the wheel/tire technicians how to hoist the car up properly.
I suspect that the Jack Points http://nissanleafwiki.com/images/2/2f/P5033631.jpg
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; isn't the main location for a commercial place such as Wheelworks to hoist up the car.
At places like Wheelworks, they don't typically hoist the vehicle up at the usual "jack points" that the customer would use to jack the car up to replace a flat tire. The shops have these hydraulic jacks with 4 circular "cups" at each end of an "X" beam where they position at the 4 corners of the vehicle. If they are indeed using the Jack Points location, should they still use some form of a "wooden block" that Andy Nguyen (aka: aqn) talks about? I can just see if not using these wooden blocks, that they will surely damage the metal "pinch weld" at the Jack Points.
Furthermore, I continued to research "garage lift points" or "garage jack points" information but found conflicting information. Andy Nguyen (aka: aqn) has good pictures and the links....
What I have found so far:
1) A picture that is apparently in-accurate for lift points. Picture shows exhaust pipes, probably a misprint of another vehicle other than the Leaf.

2) There is a discussion thread here: http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 58#p174658
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, but still very confusing.
3) Wiki http://mynissanleaf.com/wiki/index.php? ... _up_a_LEAF
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; does not explain what to do if you are sending your Leaf to a commercial wheel/tire shop who doesn't know about these cars and the Owners Manual with wrong information of garage lift points is useless.
Any advice is most appreciated!
