Hi all

I’m looking at buying one of these but I don’t have a clue how it fits, and if it will fit what I have already. Could someone shed some light on it please?

Thanks again all!

I believe your spare wheel mount should have on of these fitted, onto which the cover bolts.

It should be located on the centre of the spare wheel. I have one for a £5 plus postage if you need one. Unable to suggest more as my Jimny does not have the cover so removed mount, no want to fit the cover as I like looking at the alloy wheel more.

Yeh in the middle of my spare wheel I have that, two threaded bolts with nothing on? You can just about see it if you zoom my picture.

Just can’t figure out how the cover goes on to those two bolts?

Tried to zoom, was not sure. I assume you have a long bolt or screw that holds the plastic cover to this. Not seen one fitted myself, so anyone??

It looks like it uses a wheel nut to hold it to the threaded portion of the mount.

See this, any help?

It only bolts to one - the bottom I think. It's fairly obvious when you fit it as it will only match up to one. You use one of your locking wheel nuts to attach it to the carrier

The bit in the middle with two wheel studs on it can be mounted either way up depending on the offset of the spare wheel...

If you have different offset wheels or wider tyres and the cover doesn't fit as a result just buy one of these -

In 12mm / 1.25mm metric fine pitch to match the Suzuki wheel studs / nuts and lengthen the stud on the middle mount to accommodate the wheel / tyre you are hanging on the back...

Is It Sunday Yet? :)
