rennwagen -- Thanks

I bought one of these (Maxspeed part PCJP) for jacking up each corner to change to winter wheels. It fits into Porsche's rectangular jack point PERFECTLY and I wish I had gotten it years ago. ....
rennwagen:

Thanks for the name of the manufacturer and part number the jack pad, Maxspeed part PCJP, and for taking the time to later post the images of that pad. Appreicated. Mac18

Tempting if I could only reset the oil change nag screen on my MY2016.

For those who bought this, does the 16" (maximum?) height give you plenty of room underneath, while laying on a creeper, to easily remove all those clips from the protective cover & then access the oil filter?

I purchased both the Maxspeed PCJP jack pad and the eBay generic BMW-style jack pad. The Maxspeed PCJP is beautifully machined from aluminum and is quite a bit larger than the BMW-style rubber one. The rubber one I found is solid rubber and seems heavy duty, especially for the price:

While the BMW-style fits in the Macan jack slot, it is quite a bit shorter than the slot, and much smaller in diameter. See photo below:

Rosen,


If your design works after testing, please give us the dimensions of each component.

Rosen,

The front left corner of the car was jacked up on the block, and no damage to the block or the car.

The main block is 5 7/8" x 3" x 7/8" scrap TREX. The center block was cut on a band saw, and is used to locate the main block on the jack point. The measurements are 1 1/8" x 2 15/16" x 1/2". The two pieces are attached with Kreg 1" coarse thread screws, countersunk.

I made a upgraded set of Jack pads
Since I needed a low profile jack for my other car, the other ones I made were a little to short, had to jack the jack up all the way to get the tires off the ground. So I bought two sheets of HDPE from Granger one was 1 inch the other 1/2 inch. So the new ones are 1/2 inch taller, so I don't have to raise the jack up to it's tallest position

Total cost was $30 for 6 jack pads

Looks like hockey pucks and Trex would work?

I think the rectangles are really only needed for alignment purposes. They are used with the emergency jack to hold it in place, but doesn't seem necessary when you have a floor jack. The reason I say this is because I was at the shop getting a brake flush I asked the tech if he uses special pads to lift the Macan and he said no, as long as the jack pad is flat against the jack points it will work. So I just bought 4 hockey pucks.

I’ve been using hockey pucks to jack my PORSCHES for years. Have not used it on my Macan yet, but don’t know why it would be different....

Just looked on their web site and don’t see them. Searched “PCJP” and nothing there either. I’ll give them a call tomorrow. Do you recall the cost?


UPDATE: Called Maxspeed Motorsports. They do still have it but it is under Porsche Cayenne Parts/Porsche Cayenne Service Tools/ Porsche Cayenne 958 2011+ / Macan 2014+ Aluminum Jack Pad JackPad. Same part number "PCJP". $34.95 for 1.

I just ordered two of the Rennstand jacks, Macan pads and carry bag. Shipping was $48 (gulp), so I checked Amazon. They are sold there but at no savings. But I found a promo code DELTA10 and it worked. Then I tried DELTA15 and that worked. Next I tried DELTA20 and that worked. So saved 20%, more than the shipping cost.

I also tried DELTA25 but no cigar. >:D

Agh! I just ordered one about an hour ago, and shipping was $ 20, but I didn't get a 20% discount, :crying::crying::crying:
