For anybody who is interested these are OEM quality and identical in every way to the originals....

What do the clips fit to?

I use these which sit on my jack and work fine.

The "blocks" dailydoggy has linked are the actual jacking point blocks which are fitted to the cars chassis underneath (in four corners). They are what the "rubber block/jacking pads" you've linked sit into when you jack up the car. :wink:

I've heard the chassis jacking point blocks can get damaged easily so I guess that is why dailydoggy has linked them kindly for other members. :thumbs:

Are these easy to replace?
I have a mangled one on my e91 that could do with changing

If the old one is out, they'll press in very easily with a car jack.

Ah OK, I was thinking more along the lines of removal through.
Would it be a case of drilling the old one out perhaps?

It's the rectangular lip that's damaged and interferes with the block when jacking. It would be good to get a new one in there.

Removal is a bit trickier. If you buy a new one you'll see where the clips are, so you can try attacking those. Try not to damage the underseal of course.

Looking at the pics it seems a long way to get to the clip so might be a case of drilling the base of the block between the clips and getting access from that area.
Think I'll get one and have a play.
I will report back with any tips
