part # for the little block that goes in the lifting points?

I know I've seen it before, but I've been searching all morning and coming up blank. It's the bmw part # for the block that fits inside the plastic lifting point so that you can use a normal hydralic jack.

Dealer's parts dept can't find it and looked at me like I was a freak when I asked for it.

Who's bright idea was it to make the lifting points out of plastic anyway? At least they're cheap to replace when you crack them.

I used a hockey puck and cut it to size. It fits perfectly on both the jack pad, and in the jack pad location on the car. Took 5 minutes to make, once I measured the rectangle shape on the car.

Hockey puck or little square of pressurized 2"x4".

I think you dreamed the part existed.

are these the only solutions?

so if nothing is placed in the middle, and a regular hydraulic jack is used, the black plastic will crush?

I don't think it's plastic. It's metal.

It's definitely plastic. I busted a corner off of one of mine. Also, shragon, you're supposed to cut the hockey puck to the correct size, as I mentioned in the 2nd post of this thread.

Sorry for the crappy illustration.. I just did it in MS paint, but I think you'll get the idea.

The object is not to fill the space, but rather pad the point so you don't have metal on metal. You have a cup of metal to lift a cup of metal. You could scratch or bend the metal; also it may not be that stable.

Cut the end of a 2" by 4" off or ask your neighbor for a piece of scrap wood.

Look at the two pieces and it'll be evident.

I think this might be what you are looking for. I thought I might have the same problem locating the thread to find this part # again so I noted it down. Hopefully this is what you need.

Hi guys, tried posting my question in another thread but no one answered me. I bought the factory alarm and am going to install it myself. My friend has a garage with a few lifts in it, so we are going to do the install there so we can put the car on a lift and take the tire off, making the install that much easier. BUT my question is, since we are using a LIFT, do we need these little plug things?
Thanks

Hate to drag up an old post, but what did you use to cut the hockey puck?
