I'm contemplating taking the whole spare wheel well out to fix the crap in the corners ( see pics) .

What is the purpose of the tab on the inside, at the pen tip, under the wooden floor?

Does it support the jack?

Ok... so floorboard rest it is.
If the tab is to support the wooden floor panel then mine is about 25 mm /1 inch too low. Strange. I will need to take a closer look when im back home (out of country for a few days); it may got wacked at some point in its life. That corner of my car isn't its best side....

Anyone in a position to post a pic?

Im also interested learn about the exact location of the threaded post that holds the jack. I have 3 holes (that oncr were spotwelds?) but no threaded post.
Luckily it was available at the dealer 3yrs ago so if anyone can tell me where it should go, i'll weld it in.

Erik.
