Round jack points for a floor jack

I was advised in another forum that there are round jack point pads on the HHR that are for use with a floor jack and was also told that they are obvious if I look under the car...well I just did and I don't see squat that may resemble the round jack points


It very well could be that these points were on the 2006's and not 2007's???


I feel pretty dumb if I am just not seeing these jack points for a floor jack


Any help on this?? If they are there can someone either show me in a pic or describe where in painstake detail



Seriously, I think I am losing it if they are in plain view

Sorry no pic, but they were plain as day, they even have a drain hole in the center. But you can always just use the same jacking point as the sissor jack, no adapter is needed.

On my 2006 there are pairs of oblong "holes" in the chassis that I think may be for the newer lifts that dealerships used. I tried using those for my jack stands, but the metal started to bend a bit.

I have not seen the round jack points either.

I tried using a floor jack on the normal jacking points and the metal crimp started to bend, so I ordered the Eastwood adapter.

Without a lift ,GM does not want you to raise both sides of the front end at the same time is my guess. But you could lift one side, place a jack stand under it and then lift the other side.

I think that picture is the United Kingdom version. You know how the have everything on the wrong side over there.
