Help! How do I jack up the car?

I'm at the tire shop test fitting the all-seasons to my car right now.

They have a call into Jaguar to figure out if there is anything special they need to do before jacking up the car - due to the air suspension.

Does anyone know if there is any procedure to this or just jack it up?

Thanks,

As is so often the case, the manual is your friend

I looked in the owners manual and searched Jack, Lift, Tire Change, etc. Nothing showed up in the app for the manual.

All is good though.

The issue wasn't the hardpoints, they just wanted to make sure there wasn't something we had to setup with the air suspension in order to lift the car.

Tesla's have a jacking mode for this.

The IPace can be lifted without doing anything to the suspension.

One interesting item I noticed while the wheels were off - there was a huge mix of not only Jaguar part tags on the suspension but also a lot of Land Rover. Seems they really did raid the Land Rover parts bin for the air suspension?

I am glad to hear it and the excellent performance of the i-Pace's air suspension gives credence to that idea.

JLR = Jaguar Land Rover so seeing parts from a Land Rover in a Jaguar and vice versa shouldnt be that uncommon.
I will need to jack up my IPace in the spring, so care to share where the hard points are for the jack?
