Hey!
So I'm looking to paint my calipers and drums however I'm unsure of where my Jack/Axel points are. I have a 2016 Corsa and I've scoured the internet and I keep seeing different points however I don't want to go with the wrong one and bugger the underside of my car.
Can anyone show me with the pics I've attached and if I'm even close to them?
Thanks! :)

Your jacking points are the reinforced sections on the pinch welds of the sills, one at the front, one at the back each side.

Those big box sections in your photos are what the body sits on as it travels down the production line when it is being built.

I jack on the subframe where the bottom arm is attached at the front and on the spring seat at the rear. Both are plenty strong enough to lift with. Put an axle stand then under the front of the subframe at the front. St the back put the stand under the torsion beam axle.

There's different jacking points depending on the jack you're using, A trolley jack or scissor jack are the common ones.

If using the standard scissor jack then then use on the closest jacking point to the wheel (look on sill for a part that has a notch (or an arrow)

Like in the attached image

I wouldn't recommend using the scissor jack as they're not very stable, and remember its safer to also use some axel stands and some wheel chocks

Below is some advice from Kwikfit on where to use the jack

Hey bud, with my floor jack, I will lift the car with a wide spread jack pad on the area in green and then place my Axles stands in the area in red
