I just installed a two post lift in my garage. Is there a schematic on where to place the lift pads to raise my Yaris.
When I raised it with a regular hydraulic car jack I use the assigned pinch points. My Toyota dealer shop seems to use more robust lifting points using the shop lift with large round pads.

Are there any photos of the lift points used when a dealer lifts a Yaris?

Most FWD get lifted by the pinch seams in the rear, and the subframe or inner framerail on front. I don't remember but I think the Yaris is able to be lifted on the subframe bolts. It's totally fine to lift the Yaris by the pinch seam f&r though.

Congrats on the new hoist. So much more pleasant than crawling around in the dirt.

Standard lift points on the pinch welds in the front and back.

I personally never lift my car by the pinch welds, ruins the metal and leads to rust in the climate I live in. I use the body rails that run alongside the belly of the car and are just inside from the pinch welds. Subframe is also fine.

A lot of shops like by the monocoque frame "rails" as it is a flat solid surface and mates with their lifts mounting point well without scratching paint and leading to rust
I like to drive a slow car fast...
