Post #5.

There are 4 jacking/lift points. I strongly discourage anyone from jacking on any other place on the car. Just because it looks sturdy does not mean it is sturdy enough.
I saw your thread, what are the knobs you mentioned?

What manual did you buy? I may pick one up myself just to see the jacking points.

All i see under the car are some black cubes tbst seem to be plastic. (4 of them).

If you have a change can you share the pages from your manual (pictute).

Thanks

Printed manual should have come with your Giulia. PDF versions can be downloaded
Giulia Owners Manual

From page 170 of that pdf. Alfa Romeo calls them lifting points not jacking points.



Those black cubes indicated by the triangles on the side skirts are the lift / jacking points.

Are those reinforced cubes made of "race ramp" plastic? Looks like it.

I have used the plastic jack points to rotate tires and do a oil change, they work fine but since you can't jack anywhere else ( no jack stands) means you need 2 jacks.

Standard location for jacking points..... thanks for the confirmation!

Do you really need 2 jacks to change a tire?

so you guys are just lifting on those black plastic squares?
I wonder if Alfa sells some sort of adapter.

I will try the jack with a hockey puck. I just dont want to break or crack the black plastic pieces.
Does anyone have a picture of what the factory car jack looks like?

I just found this thread. I bought my repair manual from TechAuthority (https://www.techauthority.com/), which is owned by MOPAR.
Please note that the CD only works with Internet Explorer.

Hockey pucks work great, as do wood blocks.

I don’t think any come with one, as I’ve never seen a spare tire, only on the Stelvio.
The plastic cubes are technically for a lift, not a jack, as AR does not recommend using a jack on the cars (according to our training, nothing in print saying that though). Although they’re plenty strong and I would say you’ll be fine using a jack there. Otherwise you could lift under the control arms, but the blocks are much easier and safer.

Hmm, I missed that earlier. Our Giulias do not come with a spare tire nor is it an option. We don't have a jack or any tool kit. The plastic cube won't break as it's designed be the jack point. I've lifted my car and many others have been lifted as well.
