Is this hard rubber/ plastic block an official jacking point suitable to lift the entire front of the A160?
Circled in red.

Would the position of this axles stand, be OK to take the weight ?

Or more conveniently can one put the axles stand under the front trailinq arm, as in the picture if used with a non leaking jack ... as a failsafe?

Yes its a jacking point. You don't want axle stands on the front suspension as its not level and can move . Look for main chassis part thats structural and flat. Top photo looks OK. Leave the trolley jack in a good place also .and place a wheel under the sill. Last thing you want is to be crushed .

I am 2/3 way thro building a steel platform and staircase then it's cars, all, up on lift for annual look around. I will be making 4 no1.2 m axle stands to keep car up so lift can drop to allow muffler, prop out of clk to change center prop bearing
