Is it safe to jack up the car from rear by the rear differential? I saw my tire shop do this when they were rotating tires on my MDX. I think someone once told me that it was safe to do than on another car, but want to double check. Thanks.
There is a jacking point BEHIND the rear differential that is specified in the MDX shop manual. It is a black steel projection.
The only jack ever used on the rear differential is a transmission jack to remove or replace it.
There is also a similar point on the front of the vehicle, which is a steel tie down hook slot.
