In this post, we are going to treat a theme that can be of use to most of us. Whether it’s because you have a flat tire, or you want to change your brake pads, knowing where the jack is on a Chrysler 300 is important. Indeed, without the jack, you won’t be able to lift your car and consequently change a wheel, or, access the elements behind it such as the brake pads for example. To achieve this, we will first show you the different types of jacks, then, where the jack is on an Chrysler 300, and at last, how to use the jack on your car.


What are the different types of jacks for Chrysler 300?

So we start our article with the different types of jacks that exist. Indeed, although in general most Chrysler 300 will be equipped with the same sort of jack, there are still different styles with different uses, here they are:

  • The single-arm screw jack for Chrysler 300 : The first type of jack, the most classic and cheapest of all, is generally located on entry-level models, or with few options. This sort of jack has only one articulated arm that is positioned under the motor vehicle to lift it. This sort of jack is light, easy to use, but does not allow you to lift large loads.
  • The double-arm screw jack for Chrysler 300 : It uses precisely the same principle as the jack seen above, that is, a worm screw that will allow screwing to raise the jack, and unscrewing to lower it, however the use of a double arm will allow to have a more stable jack that can lift a higher payload.
  • The hydraulic jack for Chrysler 300 : This type of jack is not standard equipment on vehicles, and is usually only provided with a premium model or bought in motor vehicle centres. These jacks are heavier, generally less bulky and have the advantage of being much easier to use and able to lift a larger load. It would cost between 20 and 50 euros to buy them, here is a simple and effective model from Oscaro.
