Running boards and jack points

I got my 2021 Rav4 PHEV with running boards installed. I seem to remember there was some documentation with the car, giving instructions on how to jack the car to change a tyre, as the running boards covered the normal jacking points? However, I can't find that information any more. Has anyone here got those instructions or can point me to some online? Thanks!

I think you need a "jack block" which sits on top of a scissor jack. As the PHEV doesn't come with a spare wheel you would need to acquire a suitable jack etc. Here's a pic of the jack block from the USA Ravworld site.

Seeing your post got me worried so I went out to look and although I have the running boards I can see the original jacking point ok and looks like the jack should go on it ok.mine is 2019 HEV. Maybe only needed on later hev/Phev.

The jack block I referred to was related to older RAV models (2017)......you should check to see if the current running board fitment fouls the jacking point or not. You may be fine I don't know
