Correct jacking point to lift the rear end of my 2004 Murcielago (and recommended hydraulic jack and jack stands) to replace my battery.


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody! I hope that all is well. Can somebody please tell me the location of the Correct jacking point to lift the rear end of my 2004 Murcielago to replace my battery? The service manual I have has a diagram showing this jacking point, but I am not certain about its location, as said diagram lacks detail and measurements. I also need to know the correct jack stand points. Also, can somebody recommend a good reasonably priced rolling hydraulic jack, and jack stands for me to replace the battery in my 2004 Murcielago (hopefully, these are items that I can buy at Harbor Freight Tools, AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, etc.)? Do I need to use tire chocks to immobilize the front tires when jacking the rear of my Murcielago? Finally, what is the best Die Hard Battery to use in my 2004 Murcielago (that is known to fit and work properly in Murcielagos)? I searched for answers to these questions on this forum, but wasn't able to find the answers that I need. As always, I greatly appreciate any help from the great and knowledgeable people on this forum. Best Regards--Brock

I have always used the middle of the frame at the back, with the handle down i can slide the jack straight underneath the exhausts and jack it up. I can only get the half movement out of the handle but that is enough. Then put the axle stands on the corners of the frame, they are reinforced in that area.

Here is where I jacked and supported mine. I rose the front of the car before jacking, because with the front being so low I wasn't sure if it would hit or not. I would also suggest the long stud guides to go into at least a couple of the wheel bolt holes before removing the wheel, otherwise you may scratch the inner wheel (especially true with CCB, I have approx 1/4 inch clearance on mine). The long studs help because of the weight too. As shown in the photo my first change was without the long studs using a board to support the wheel. Plus if you like a trickle charger port in the wheel well area you could do that too.

The correct way to remove the wheels without risking damage to the rotors is to use wheel hanger tools:

The dealer uses similar tools and your wood solution is clever but very height specific.

Yup you got that right, I was pretty much rookie on my first Murci battery change so I got 4 of these ready for next time.  Just make sure you get the thread correct. Nice video you posted too, of course they are useful in removing the wheel as well...but I am sure that's understood.
