Spare Wheel Location

  1. By the way, if anyone does happen to frequent a scrap yard and finds an 18" Audi space saver, could you give me a shout please? (obviously it has to be 5x112 stud pattern)
     
  2. 2 cans of tyre foam and an rac card for me. Modern cars don't have spare wheels

    Most cars that don't have spare wheels either have foam and a compressor (not the rubbish from Halfords) or run-flats though.
     
  4. Am tempted to risk it for now, leave the spare wheel in the garage and get a couple cans of tyreweld. Don't even have a jack and brace for the bus anyway!

    I have AA breakdown cover as a back-up!
     
  5. You'll need a Jack for the tyre weld to work !

    The flay tyre needs to be raised off the floor and the suspected puncture zone should be rotatated to the lowest point...
     
  6. Hmm... have a bottle jack from my other car I can probably stash under the passenger seat!

    You didn't but I'm guessing most people use the Halfords stuff.
    Do you not need a compressor for the Renault stuff?
    Don't eat it, apparently it's rough!
     
  9. no need for a compressor and if its good enough for a manufacturer (even though its renault) its good enough for me.
    wouldnt want a blow out, but thats what the rac card is for

  12. danbury one is higher up probably due to the rear number plate being obscured by the landmark sort, yank plates are a lot smaller
     
  13. Was partaking of my evening fleabay search and came across this which may be of interest to any of you in the Kent area...
