Where do you place the jack when you change the tire? Why the hole in the jack?

Asked by Jan 20, 2008 at 06:21 PM about the 1992 Geo Tracker 2 Dr LSi 4WD Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The tire is flat - put in the jack - it has a hole on it - just wondered if you place something in that hole for stabilizing it.

I believe the hole is there to insert your jack handle, if it is a scissors-type jack. There are usually jacking points on the pinch weld indicated by a recessed area about 6" behind the front tire and 6" in front of the rear tire where you use the factory jack.
