    330E help rear jack point

    I need to remove both rear tires on my 2021 330e. Plan on using floor jack to raise the back and jack stands on the lift points near rear wheels. Iím hesitant to use floor jack on differential. The main beam behind it is inaccessible as there is a crossbeam (sorry do y have name for it) on top of it. Wondering if I can use the floor jack there. Wish I could post a pic of it. Any thoughts.?

    I raise my cars by the diff all day long, just use a jacking pad or a block of wood so you are not metal on metal. Then slide the stands under the lower control arms or at the jacking points on the sides, your pick.
