2003 a4 cabriolet Jack and wheel brace

Hi guys/gals Trying to get my son out of the mire!! Where is the jack and wheelbrace normally housed, he claims he hasn't got one! Flat tyre car going nowhere,
any sensible suggestions as to where to buy suitable new or second hand ones. Where are the jacking points on this car for a trolley jack??
Thanks Martyn

Did he look in the compartment on the side of the trunk where you install the CD changer as well? Both the jack and the lug wrench should be in a plastic tool box there.
Cheers,
Pete

Martyn, You'd think that the jack and the rest of the tools would be in the trunk (errr, sorry, "boot") with the spare. I read somewhere that Audi was going to be using a tire goo "patch" and inflator instead of a spare - which does you little good if you suffer a massive blowout - in order to save space (no tools nor spare tyre!). As the a4 cab needs some precious boot space for the roof, could this be one of those cars? As far as where are the jacking points for a shop jack, (at least on the older cars) there's a rubber "bumper" pad installed on the underside at the 4 corners that marks where the jack can lift (they're further in than the points for the OE jack). If not, then carefully select a point (ie - subframe mounting point to body) that will take the load of jacking the car up. Is this another bit of info that the owner's manual doesn't have? If not, what DOES the manual have in it, besides precautions about drinking antifreeze, closing the window while sticking your head out, etc. etc. It sounds like it should be about the size of a comic book.

Well, my '04 A4 has all of the tools stored with the spare tire. Same chassis as the Cab, so they should be in there. There is a black plastic box with everything in it.
