I don't understand what you're asking. The jack is in the trunk and you have to pop off one of the two little jack-point covers on the side skirts in order to use it.

and spare...

It's a collapsible spare. You have to inflate it with the included pump before installing it.

WOW an automatic jack would be cool.
Press a button and the car lifts off the ground.
Speed racer style. lol

If there is no pump then you got to get one. It should have a pump. I ran into the same problem when I bought mine used - it had no pump but I was so excited I failed to check this out. But you do have roadside service if you ever get a flat tire and find yourself without a pump to inflate the spare tire. Plus I also carry AAA, just in case.
