Default Jacking/Aixsle Stands

Jacked my car up today for first time. First time learner I know and wondering if I'm doing it right. I placed the jack on the chassis rail first but I didn't feel safe with it on the bar? So I then placed the jack round the nut and seem to be able to lift the car better. I then put the aixsle stands on the chassis rail hence where all the Marks are. Can I put the aixle stand where I've put the arrow on the picture? Cos then it will Sit better with it been abit more of a surface? Using these tools.

You could put them on the jacking points but it might damage the sill.the area you circled looks good to me...perhaps there is a front lower suspention area is a viable option..but not where it moves..

I know this is hard to make out but this is taken out of My haynes book. Where I've been placing my jack round the nut on the first few pics. I've circled it on this pic. It's just on the edge of the pic. Is they anywhere on this pic I can place aixsle stands?

imo the only safe places to put a jack or axle stands is the jacking points on the sill or the subframes (not the rear beam though, that'll deform).

I've seen loads of Peugeots fail mots because someone has jacked under the 'chassis' rails or spreaders, dented and scratched them to buggery and then they've rusted out.

The rails aren't designed to take point loads like a jack or axle stand.

If you have no option other than the rails, spread the load with a decent sized chunk of wood.

I only watched enough of that video to see that the bit of wood he planned to use was woefully insufficient and that he pointed at where the jacking point is on a pug and said "avoid this bit"...


(Oh, and I don't know where "aixsle" came from, it's "axle", it's even written on the box...)
