This little tool goes into one of the lug nut holes and allows you to align the spare wheel easily when mounting it. You then put in one or two other lugs, and the wheel is perfectly and easily aligned. My '97 *did* have this little tool; my '00 doesn't.

: on the left side of the tool kit, would be the arm for the plug socket (which they dont provide), came in my '98.
