Default Rear Jack placement in M800 ?

A M800 has flat rear tyres. But I cannot find the place (a stable flat surface) to fix the jack near the rear wheel. There seems to be no flat surface available. The older model of the M800 used to have a flat surface near the rear wheel IIRC. But the later models seems more crude. Any advice on this count is welcome.

So do I need to fix the jack from behind the car, rather than from the conventional sideways ?

one can't approach the rear shocker from the side no ?

yes you have put the jack from behind you can put the jack sideways but it will require a lot of force

ok the flat has been replaced. But I wonder why Maruti has made it so cumbersome.
It is a surefire method of soiling a clean pair of trousers.

manikjeet, many thanks to you again for your timely help.

well its not recommended unless one has no choice but to try this, mounting the jack on the leaf spring might be very very risky as the jack has high chances of slipping as its not straight(non parallel to the ground), only under helpless conditions and under the guidance of an experienced person should one do so.

EDIT:instead why not try the rear axle for the same in the leaf spring version of m800, i have the same version too.
