    Is this the front end jack point on a 2012 Civic LX?

    For some reason this answer seems to be quite elusive on the Google. In the below video, at about 1:54, is the metal piece visible in the top left corner (the one with two rectangular holes in it that appears visible in the middle of the skirt) the jack point for the front end of the vehicle? It seems to me like it would be the obvious spot, but without knowing for certain the last thing that I want to do is try to jack the car up there and crush the radiator or something.

    Your owners manual will show you the proper lift points.

    Checked it. It only identifies the points on the side behind the front and rear tires. Nothing about front end or rear end jack points. The back I'm assuming is the tow hook, as it seems to be on most Hondas. But I can find nothing about where to place a jack on the front.

    I believe there is a large arrow underneath pointing to the jack point.

    Just for clarity, they are behind the front, and ahead of the rear, tires.

    Two tow hooks up front if you look under the front bumper area - one on the left side and one on the right side.

    I jack my front end up right in the middle of the front cross member. It will lift both wheels.

    Yes, lifting the car in the wrong place. Can end in tears...
    I was unaware of the front center lift point on the 9th gen until today!
    It was Erkon's comment above that caused me to look into it, as I thought he was wrong....

    Happy to help.
