Can someone please tell me the correct points to jack the Cayenne. I have included pictures of both front and rear areas, and I am not clear as to which points are to be used. I would like to raise the vehicle and then put a jack stand underneath, what is the correct way to use both a jack and a stand on a Cayenne?

The jack points listed in the owners manual references using the emergency jack and placing it in the metal lip underneath the car. However, I use a hydraulic 3 ton jack and that caused some bending of the metal lip.

I need to know if anyone has experience using the points that I show in my pictures... I read on pca.org that the big round silver washer is a jacking point...

I would like to clarify this before I cause more damage to the metal lip.

The lift points you mentioned are used for : a) garage jack B) garage lift. Never use the sub frames for jacking ( the ones with a bolt in the middle )

When the Cayenne is raised on the hoist at the dealer for service, are the hoist pads placed under the rocker-panel jacking points, or some other chassis points? Anybody seen it done at the dealer? There's too many ways to get seriously injured or killed trying to do a brake job with the car jacked by the rocker-panel points only. Doesn't pass the Darwin test in my book.
