Question Spare tire & jack questions

I've had my car for about 4 months now, but everytime i'm on the computer I forget to come here and ask:
Where is the jack located on the car? Is it supposed to be in the spare tire well, cause mine isn't?
Also, the spare tire is flat. Was my car suppose to have come with an electric cigarrete lighter air pump or something?
Please don't bash me too hard!
THANKS!

The car is supposed to come with a portable compressor. I cant remember about the jack. I have the manual but i'm out in the shop at the moment and the manual is in the house.

My wife is doing something for us special for V day and has forbidden me to enter the house for a little while. She handed me beer and said "don't come in or I will break it off". Whatever that means

The jack sits on a little tang that's just behind where the spare tire sits. The stock ones are very light (some crazy lightweight aluminum alloy). You have to open the jack a bit to place it on or take it off the tang. I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to find one at a junkyard or someplace. Good luck.

the aluminum jack goes to rear of spare; handle clips behind jack

get a $20 compressor and a valve core removal tool & keep in a ziplock bag.

to get tire to collapse competely and to resnap carpet over well it needs to deflate with core out for a day
