Need pictures of how tire jack is stowed please!

Yes, noob question, but my excuse is I bought the car used and think a bolt is missing. All I have is the one with the white plastic disk that holds the tire on. But I see one unthreaded hole in the center and two threades ones right beside it on each side, on the flange that is welded to the trunk bottom.

I also don't know in what position the jack is when stowed. Don't want it rattling forever, lol.

Maybe someone can post a couple of pics?

Thanks all!

Only one of the threaded nuts is in use. I believe there is a foam piece?

I got rid of the foam piece and all hardware when I threw a full sized spare in.

Only foam piece I have is on the spare just holding the wheel nut wrench. I have the thick insulation rectangle on the trunk floor where the jack rests but don't know how it is held on.

I'll have to check on lunch, but I believe there is a spot on the jack handle where you put the bolt through!

You have to open up the jack to a certain point, then the bolt will go through that and hold the jack tight.

I have my full sized spare (just a summer / winter tire depending on season) mounted with the outside of the wheel up and the jack under that. I don't notice it rattling around.

Found some pics on google. But I need clear confirmation - is the bolt holding the wheel also going through the jack handle 'washer'?

I believe so.

I kept backing into parking spots right next to snow banks. Couldn't get to the trunk easily haha.


I don't know where my original foam went. I tossed it when I got rid of the donut.
