What is the correct jack location? The previous owner just had it bungeed to the spare tire, and it tends to clang around a bit. A new trunk floor was installed by the PO. Are there supposed to be mounting points for the jack somewhere?

There's a threaded stud over on the left, next to the Spica vapor canister. It points forward from there, with the front by the left shock, with a wing nut holding it on.

Unless it's like my Euro 1969 where there was a clip on the right side floor close to the inner fender that snapped around the round part of the jack :)

I was speaking thinking it was a US 2000, but if it's something else, it could be elsewhere. Did 1600s have it on the rear seat panel, like Supers and Berlinas?

No Spica here! It's a euro spec, with webers. I'll check the trunk once I get home but I would think the clip is not there, since the jack was bungeed to the tire. Well I guess I have one more project for the winter now!

From the look of the welding on the trunk floor in your picture, it looks like a fair amount of repair was done, which may have resulted in non-stock things.

My experience is that there are two "U" shaped clips on the right side of the trunk floor between the spare tire well and fender, the jack snaps into the clips stowing horizontally, in the same axis as the car.The jacks used on post 67 US cars mount as Andrew wrote, they have a hole drilled through the screw lifting flange for mounting on the stud, the early and euros don't have that hole.

Alfa calls the 'U' shaped clips a 'jack attachment spring'. Part number is 105.00.52.226.01 from the 1750 Euro parts book. Quantity listed is two.
Can post a trunk pic this weekend if need be.

Hi there.
Can you please post a picture of the trunk so I can see the exact place where the two "U"'s are mounted? After the repair of my car the holes where the "U"'s were mounted were closed.

Thank you!

I have a different set up on my 1974 gtv 2000 UK car.
There is a bracket coming off the left hand wheel arch (near to the fuel pipe). A threaded bolt is fixed to this bracket. This bolt then goes through a hole on the flat triangular piece of metal on the jack and is clamped in place by a wing nut.
I think this is all original.

Do you know if this matches the ALFA parts manual for the year of your car.

A quick check of my owners manual didn't show the jack location, but both my GTVs have the same set up - a stud on the driver's side of the trunk and a hole in the jack.

My '74 USA GTV 2000 (115.01) also has the stud and wing nut on the left with the jack. This car had A/C, so the battery is in the trunk on the right.

I don't like the original jack these cars came with, so I have stopped carrying that one and now have a later Alfa Milano jack in the car. It uses the same jack point interface, but is a sturdier scissors-type mechanism so is less prone to failure and doesn't have the potential to push against the body of the car and dent it that the original GTV jacks do. I keep the original jack for shows, but when driving have the Milano one in a soft bag in the trunk with other tools and parts.
