Question Floor jack lift points?

Ok I know this has been kicked around a few time on the forums, but I want to get it right the 1st time. Do not want to screw it up trying to fix the PT or do a mod or two.
I have read in the forums that the jack is placed on the little triangles near the wheel walls, but I just can not find what looks to be a triangle. Can someone here help out an old fool? Do you have a pic or two that shows the jack under the PT, or can you give me an idea of how big the marking is? On the front is the mark on the outside or the inside of the pinch weld seem that runs from front to back, the same for the rear.

The rear point to jack up a PT Cruiser is located in front of the rear tyre on the underneath, where it looks like it should go, slightly re inforced looking piece of metal that saddles the rim of the very bottom of the car from front to back, with a small incomplete looking triangle with the point pointing towards the floor. Forget the instructions on the jack package its B**ls**t, took me 5 attemepts, and finally found the correct place.

Thanks for your reply, I just got really frustrated when I was trying to get my tyre back on, and when I did a google search on this wonder web it sort of gave me the info I needed, so I posted a reply in the hope that it might one day be of use to someone doing the same thing i did....

They do have them in your Chrysler manual or pop in to a service store & cheat by looking in one of theirs.

Would you believe it, I was checking to see what my tyre pressure should be today as they needed a bit of air, I was looked on the inside edge of the drivers door to see what the pressure they should be there is a picture of where the jack points for the front and rear are, I will also try to get some pictures as I am well intrigued to see where the front ones are as I am confident with the bacik ones now.

There used to be a diagram sticker on your passenger side door.
