I have a 2002 Ford Focus SE wagon. I want to place jack stands on the welds on the side of the car beneath the front and rear doors, but cannot fit both the jack and stands there. So I want to jack the car up from somewhere underneath so that I have room to put the jack stands on the side.
Can someone show me a picture of exactly which parts of the undercarriage are safe to jack from? Ideally I am looking for a point on the underside close to the center so I can lift both wheels at once.
I found a diagram on one of the answers to this question (about a much later version of the Focus) which the author says might apply to my model car, but the diagram looks different from what I'm seeing underneath and I don't want to make a mistake. So I would really appreciate it if someone who has a 200x Ford Focus could share a photo, or a very detailed verbal description that will help me understand exactly where I should put the jack.
