Learning how to jack up a car should be a right of passage for any driver. Before you get started jacking up your
Toyota Yaris
, be sure to park on level ground. Then, refer to your owner’s manual to verify the location of your car’s jacking points.
Start by placing the jack beneath your Yaris at the appropriate jack point closest to the flat tire. If you have a scissor jack, place the rod or wrench over the knob and crank to lift your car. If you have a hydraulic jack, put the handle in the proper position and pump it several times.
At this point, you’re ready to change the tire. Once you’re finished, lower the jack slowly.
