Um, I am interested in the answer to the original question as well!
The manuals I've seen - HBOL and ETK/TIS - for my recently acquired
E39 (recent switch from Merc - impressed so far!) specify placing axle
stands under the jacking points as Dave has said. They also state
using these points as the only suitable trolley jacking points. Now,
with the Merc I could jack up anywhere along the sill, the rear diff
or the front suspension. I guess the diff is still OK on the E39 but
am less sure about using any suspension components since, I believe
they are aluminium. I guess for rear end lift the tow bar would also
Where else is considered OK, please ?
