Putting the Jack and Spare tire back in the car


Ok so I have searched the forum but I cannot find any information on how the hell I get the jack and spare tire back into the trunk like it is supposed to. If there is a thread that already explains this could someone please direct me to it. If there isn't one please help me retain my sanity by explaining how this god forsaken jack goes back into the car. Thanks

Jack goes under where the spare goes with the L shaped threaded piece going through it. Then the spare goes over it with the L shaped piece coming through the middle then the bolt tightened down over them. Not sure if that helps at all though

thats pretty much it. You slide your threaded j hook into the hump at the bottom of the spare tire well, slide the hole thats in the handle of the jack over the j hook, then the tire goes in. After that theres a washer that is used to hold the tire down then its all held snug with a big plastic wing nut

The jack needs to be half way compressed, I believe to where it's diamond shaped to fit under the wheel.

Thanks. That does help. One more thing though how does the jack sit under there cause I thought I had it in the way that you described it but when I put the tire on top of the jack it sticks up past the well and makes it so the trunk liner doesn't sit flush.

So not all the way compressed? This may be my problem. I was thinking that it needed to be fully collapsed.

The jack has to be open just enough to clean the wheel but far enough down to avoid being in the way of the wheel. Sounds odd but it is a certain spot that it fits just right.

Heh. I put my spare tire back in, but I don't remember if I even bought my car with the threaded hook, and my stock jack was a POS. I used it for two oil changes, and the handle bent. I'll just hope I don't ever get a flat far from home, and if I do, can always flag a friendly person down. Did a 600 mile trip in May, 250 mile trip yesterday, no issues.

Got a flat last year, about 3 miles from home. I was on a back road with only a few houses, decided to knock on a random door. Met a very cool older couple, the guy was glad to help out. After we ran to my house, grabbed my spare, got that on, he showed me his first car that he said he had since about 15 years old, sitting out back of his garage. A '69 Mach 1 in need of a massive restoration.

One good thing about Chevys. My Camaro's nearly 30 year old, stock jack, works perfectly. Lifts the Mustang up effortlessly. Everything else about that car is useless though.
