You are correct Gary :-bdGazHyde said:As far as I know not having a spare tyre is not an MOT issue. But oddly if you have a defective spare tyre it is a failure!
I am determined to remove the spare wheel cage as it is 80% rusted and is in desperate need of a lick of paint. :ymsigh:Frank.A said:The lowering cable has a threaded nipple on the end that screws into the end of the cradle bolt.
Remove spare wheel in the usual manner and then raise the now much lighter cradle and unscrew the cable from the end of the cradle bolt. S:smile
Cheers Frank...I'll give it another go tomorrow......more WD40 needed :-bdFrank.A said:In pictures 1 & 2 of your last post,the hexagon nipple on the end of the cable is there to use a spanner on, to release the cable from the mounting bolt. s
At least it is on mine.
