No jack

My Etorq 1.6 was delivered with a fix and go pack, no spare or spacesaver and no Jack . I can live with getting a wheel but the Jack ? is this normal?

If you have no spare why would you need a jack?

In nearly 35 years of driving I have only ever had one puncture and that was with a Panda that had the fix and go stuff. Drove to a tyre place and had new tyre fitted. Never needed to use a jack.

Re: No jack

I have bought a spare but it came with no jack.
In the remote areas I go the fix-and-go pack is not enough so I always carry a spare. I thought someone at the dealership might have lifted the jack , anyway have now ordered one . thanks for replies.
