    Fiat 500e Lift Points for Tire Change??

    Yes, I have searched, and there is so little info to be found its insane.

    Can someone, who has experience and knows what theyre talking about, explain to me and us all, where EXACTLY the 500e should be lifted with a "Dolly" floor jack and where with a 4-point like at Discount Tire ???

    To much to lose by having it done wrong, and it is not "just like the gas 500" as it is much heavier and structurally modified from the gas 500 to accommodate the batt pack.

    Really just boggled how little information there is on this for something so mundane. I guess Fiat really didnt want to build this car !!!

    (But super glad they did)....

    Thank you boys !

    This is where a Fiat 500e is lifted. The high-voltage battery system cabling is orange and special care needs to be taken not to position the lift on them.




    When hoisting or using a floor jack to raise the FIAT 500e, it is important to utilize the proper lift points of the vehicle (1). The high-voltage battery system is located under the vehicle as well as orange high-voltage cabling. Damage to these high-voltage components could occur if proper lifting techniques are not followed.

    • When properly positioned, a floor jack can be used to lift the vehicle and support the raised vehicle with jack stands.
    • A floor jack or any lifting device must never be used on any part of the underbody other than the described areas.

    You are awesome !

    Hours of reading thru posts here, on google, and other forums, and not once did I come across this pic or detail. May consider this in the "Sticky" area. Its something so commonly needed, but missing from general available sources.

    Again, just awesome, and thanks for the help !

    Those are not the points ordinary humans can use.

    The jack points are shown by arrows on the body panels.

    You need a U shaped pad to straddle the "seam" and it is pretty wide... I found the pads at Amazon...

    If you look at the jack for the other 500's you can see what it takes.

    I have a floor jack, and it cannot get to those lifting points, and a flat lift arm without the greatly raised areas won't work, and the raised areas usually make it too tall to get under the car.

    I had to jack the car up myself when buying new tires.

    I didn't see anything that specifically mentioned Fiat.

    Yeah, but neither of those pictured will work. The notch needs to be wider and deeper... the first one is not wide enough, and the second is not deep enough.

    I found ones that work, I'll try to measure the "slot" and then post it on my site, but most of the online sales do not give the specs of the slot... so I ordered 3 and wound up with one that worked and one that could be widened as I remember. Good thing to keep in your car, otherwise you can destroy stuff with an ordinary jack.

    Someone posted the part number for the jack for the non-electric cars, that's a good option. I have a floor jack, so I needed the pad, and also, like I said, if you have to get a flat repaired or your tires changed, some places cannot jack your car without damaging that seam underneath.

    If anyone is really interested, I may forget this forum, so email me if you want greg@elmassian.com, then I will remember to measure.

    Have you considered driving the wheel onto a brick to give you an extra 3" of clearance to get your dolly under?

    My dolly fits fine under the car, but if it didn't, I'd drive the wheel onto a brick for the extra height needed.

    The pinch welds you refer to have been known to bend with the extra 500e weight according to multiple posts.
