Jacking up your 2011 BMW X3 can be dangerous if done incorrectly. The video above shows you where the jack location is along with where the jack points and lug nut wrench are located in your X3.

Use the owner's manual to find the X3 jacking points and this video to see additional jacking tips to help minimize the risk of injury. The best way to avoid injury is to never get under your vehicle while it is jacked up, especially if you don't have jack stands positioned in the jack stand points on your X3. Remember also, that even if your car is jacked up properly, another car could hit it and knock it over; therefore, be sure to give careful consideration to your environment before raising your car.
