rear passenger side of the motor above the a-arm i believe. take your passenger side front wheel off and look behind the vent for your brakes. should be by that.

Under a jacked car? Never... But wotta pain it is to get mine up on the ramps... because I can't drive up; the chin spoiler hits the ramps. This is the only car i have where I have to jack it up under the engine cradle and put jackstands on either side because the nose won't clear the ramps.

If I jack up one A-arm at a time, _then_ I can lift the front wheels high enough to just place the ramp under the tire and lower it down; that'* what I had to do last weekend to change the stabilizer link bolts. Would have been nice to change the oil after all that hassle, too, except it'* not due for a long time yet.
