Spare wheel carrier for 2019 maxi life

Post by Barry Peel » Fri May 15, 2020 1:16 pm

Afternoon, I'm sure this will have been asked before but I tried a search and couldn't come up with an answer.

I have just bought a 2019 maxi life and noticed it doesn't have a spare wheel. The van is going to be a bike carrier so don't want one inside ideally.

There appears to be some brackets underneath and on EBay etc there seems to be an item people are selling. My question is - is this just a straight bolt on item or do I have to start drilling etc. as it seems to show on some older threads.

Thanks

Barry

Do you have a eBay number Barry? I think it’s just a bar with a threaded nut and it’s loosened/tightened in the rear of the van and drops down. Definitely an idea to batter it with copper slip if refitting 😂 Mine ceased and bent it trying to take it off due to corrosion left it like that because I’ve more pressing issues with the van 🙃😂

This is my 2017 SWB looks like I just need the bracket. I’m sure I read on here that there is a heat shield on the exhaust to protect the tyre when it does dpf regen as the exhaust gets really hot. I bought a golf skinny spare which I have in the back that I’m hoping to modify the bracket to take. Image
