That's a spare hold down rod. Usually in the trunk of a car. Pt's at least over here have the basket under the back. Unless they have a propane tank under there. Not sure you have a place inside, the spare bolts down to? Maybe from another car.

OK - I'll go take a look, but the spare on mine is underneath and secured by a Nut in the Boot which the wheel brace turns to lower it so maybe this is surplus to requirements then?

Definately looks like item #7 (HOOK. Spare Tire Attach.) on the blow-up diagram on this page: Jack and Spare Tire Stowage. Fits: 2007 CHRYSLER PT CRUISER 2.4L 4 Cyl DOHC 16V SMPI, 4-Speed Automatic | FACTORY CHRYSLER PARTS

I disagree: AMC's "The walking Dead" lists this item as a Zombie neutralizer to be kept under your sun visor in the event you are accosted by a walker at a red light

Just checked and that item hooks the spare tyre cage and ends up in the Nut under a cover in the Boot. Still a mystery for the moment, feels more like a battery clamp or something similar but I still can't locate a home for it!

Like I said this is a spare tire hold down for another car. That has a trunk. Wasn't sure if over seas cars had provisions inside the car. We don't here. But you said yours is under the pt like the ones here. Too long to hold jack in place.

Does it hold down a flat tire as they can't fit in the minispare basket?
