    Default WTB 205 spare wheel cage latch

    Yes, I am unsure what I am asking for but my car lacks any type of latch which holds the spare wheel cage in place near the back bumper end.
    I presume it is a latch attached to the boot floor pan and can be unbolted. Any help appreciated. Willing to send you a few bucks plus postage if you can help me. Car is a series 1 205 GTI.

    It is a bolt from the top and underneath is a nut type of thing with a hook that latches onto the spare wheel carrier.

    There is probably one here somewhere but try Graham Wallis as he is closer.

    Haha.

    Its a bolt type thing with a hook on the end. The cage hinges from a couple of holes near the rear beam ( i think ) and then the tyer/wheel fits snug between the cage and the boot floor. The hook picks up the cage and squeezes it until there is tension for it to not rattle around. I would have a few lying about but Im nowhere them...

    Just concentrate on your new babies and be happy about your adopted out baby surviving a flat tyre. Also, I have a 206 space saver, which weighs much less. I made an Alum bracket to hold it in place, due to being narrower.

    Wouldnt a bit more low down weight at the rear help handling some anyway? I can easily unbolt it for the track.

    Yes, I have seen a pic of the bolt thingy I am looking for - could almost make one up from Bunnings, which I will have to do unless some good samaritan like Cam can locate one and send it to me......

    Dont stress about it. Perhaps have a short hunt around and it might work out. Postage pack would not cost much - its only a hook and a bolt huh?
