Spare wheel underside arm plate sheared

Post by frankflyer » Mon Sep 09, 2019 12:04 pm

Hi. I bought a 2016 Maxi relatively recently and noticed the spare wheel underneath was buckled. I got the garage to replace the wheel. On swapping them over I realised the corner of the plate where one of the two bolts securing the support arm screws in is sheared. Reading the forum it seems a common problem..

Anyone got a garage to weld another plate on? Any idea on costs? Or pictures of what a repair looks like?

Weld a stronger angled piece on pre drill it and weld a nut to the top side job done ,plenty of grease on the exposed thread on the new bolt.
