Ok, first of all I know these are really simple questions to most of you but I could use some help. Really glad to find this forum.

First of all I have no manual(bidding on one from ebay)

1. Where is the Jack storage for changing flat tire?
2. Missing clip to hold the rod for the hood, where to find?

Thanks for your help in advance, I am sure I will have more questions!

...or just rest the hood on the windshield. Just don't let it slam back, I used to gently rest it down and never had any problems with damage. Ya get much more access doing this than using the prop.

I think he's missing the clip that holds the rod to the hood when the hood is closed.
