Unless the car came with staggered wheels, in which case it was issued a Space-Saver donut, which is located *under* the filler panel in the spare first glance, it appears there`s nothing there, just dig a little deeper.
And, BTW, the factory jack is a dangerous, total piece of crap....invest $29 in a hydraulic "trolley jack" (looks like a scaled-down floor jack, often comes in a blow-molded plastic case for easy transport & storage) at Sears or auto parts store.
