Where is the tow eye located?

I looked in the trunk, looked in the manual. Nothing shows where the hook would be located. Getting the vehicle towed tomorrow out of my driveway and I need the hook. Thanks

Spot on Steve. I think that's the standard storage location for them. I too couldn't find mine when I first got my car, and at the dealership the tire inflation kit bag was what they pointed me to.

Everyone is spot on. I found mine in the tire inflation bad jammed in. I wrapped it in a small towel and stowed it in the empty side cubby where the jack would normally be along with some detailing mist and microfiber rag in case of birds 🦅.

I checked for mine today, it is missing from the inflator bag. Is it a Mazda part? The front tow hook for the ND MX-5 is Tow Hook - Mazda (KD53-50-EJ1B) (the rear one is Tow Hook - Mazda (C237-50-EJ0 if anyone is interested)
Can anyone confirm if this is the right part to order? Much appreciated.

My used 124 was missing the tire repair kit and the tow hook as well.

Do I just need the front hook? Ordering an MX-5 ND jack too, and assuming the ND front hook will work?

Usually some people carry a mini baseball bat, that might look illegal, so

Mine is under the seat, just in case I need to defend my self.
Plus it's a car part.
