Spare wheel??

Post by Daverj » Fri Jan 01, 2021 3:54 pm

Hi All
Is it possible to fit a spare wheel ( full size or space saver) in the well in the boot?
Don’t fancy the gooey stuff.
Anyone done similar?

Yes - lots of info on here. Do you have the Bose sub-woofer? If so check out DaveBerlin's postings.

Yes has the Bose woofer. Will check out your recommendations. Not too familiar with the searches etc.
Thanks for your help

Thanks DaveBerlin and Gloucester excellent feedback and information. Have started looking for a kit rather than individual items.

DaveBerlin, Thanks for all your help I ordered and took delivery of a 17 inch space saver kit today.
One last question, what is the best way to store it in the boot ( I have the Bose woofer)?
Do I cut the polystyrene to accommodate the wheel? And does the woofer then sit inside the wheel? Or does the wheel go over the woofer?
Would sooner take advice from anyone who has done it already rather than guess and get it wrong.
Thanks all

Dave, please take a look at this Post it shows exactly what I done to make our Bose fit into 16” Dia Wheel, with a 17” you should have slightly more space. The Wheel is reversed and the Bose Sub-Woofer dropped in and secured. I did not modify any Styropor parts but did use what was supplied in the new QQ - take a look at the pics I think you will work it out - Dave 😉

Thanks DaveBerlin. Didn’t realise the polyfoam was in 3 separate pieces, all fitted in perfectly, just need a road test to see if anything is loose or banging about.
Can’t thank you enough 👍👍
