jacking front axle stand

I wouldn't put a trolley jack on the sill points for the Citroen supplied jack. Its a special shape to take the Citroen Jack.

You can use a block of wood and trolley jack on the lower wishbone mounting points - one has an arrow in red in my picture.

They will also take an axle stand :D

Great, thanks for the info. So to double check, my plan is to use both wishbone mounting points, one to jack up using wood block and the other for the axle stand. Sounds nice and simple -famous last words!
