i've ran into this problem myself. i need to replace my rear rotors and pads and tried lifting the car with my hydraulic jack (pictured) by putting the jack under the jack point, well the jackpoint turned out to be plastic and hollow and you can see how the jack was damaging the plastic (pictured).

is the solution then to place the jack under the rear diff crossbar and then put the stands under these jack points (which i think will further damage them) or to place the jack stands as another member pictured here:

any help would be really appreciated. i need to figure this thing out in the next day or two at the max since my pads really need to be swapped.

thank you all for contribution.
