Spare and jack mounting
« on: July 06, 2018, 03:16:58 AM »
I know I just read a topic on this, but I could not find it with the search. I'm going to put my spare and my jack in my trunk, I found where it is at in the assembly manual. Difficult to picture in the trunk. I found where the top of the Jack goes up in the bracket towards the back of the seat and I have not figured out where the end goes towards the wheelhouse

Bill,
If you're not using the 'advanced search' function, that's probably why you can't find a known thread - more about searching here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=16435
Hope someone can show a picture that answers your question - haven't got around to restoring my trunk yet.

Are you just looking for a pic of a spare mounted in the trunk? I can take one for you if you need it.

A picture would be good what I was wondering how far the Jack sets over towards the wheelhouse and where it ends up sitting. I found the angle piece up by the backseat and I have no idea where the end ends up on the right side by the wheelhouse.

I think I got it. Let me look at mine and see what I've got. If I remember correctly, one end of the jack rests against that angle bracket welded to the trunk floor, and the other end just sits there and is held down by the spare tire and base plate. What I do not have is the rubber sleeve which slides over the jack mast and lug wrench to hold the lug wrench in place.

That's what I was wondering is where that other end goes. I've got a couple those sleeves someplace I bought have no idea where they went

I shoved the jack forward against the wheelhouse and covered any contact area with some foam type shipping wrap I had. I did read where the tire should go against the back seat and the Wheelhouse but mine will not go that far forward without the back of the tire coming off the trunk floor. Everything is tight so we're going to see what happens. not much room for anything else now

Yup I recall looking into this when someone asked about the space-saver a while back, there are several different configurations and j-bolt mounting points, depending on coupe, convertible, full-size and space-saver. I think on the coupe with full-sized spare, the L-bracket near the center of the rear seat back locates the jack mast and the outboard end just relies on the clamping force of the spare secured above it stopping it from moving/rattling, like Jimmy said above.

I agree. Just kind of thrown in there and you hope it doesnt rattle!!  Mine has too much padding so we should be good. Off to a big show tomorrow and should be a perfect day
