Spare wheel retro-fit

Post by GlasgowXC40 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 1:45 pm

Hi All.

New car arrives in the next 2/3 weeks after 7 months wait...very excited!

When I ordered the car I overlooked ordering a spare wheel instead i have the spray can/electric inflation combo that comes as standard.

Contacted the dealership today to order a spare wheel to be told that on XC40's the spare wheel has no compartment underneath to store it if not factory fitted. Can anyone confirm if this is the case or if there is a work around?

For refernce, I didn't go for the convenience pack so my boot is just the basic version.

Pete,
I also overlooked this when I ordered my car. I visited my dealer yesterday to order the space saver wheel. They have ordered the wheel, the jack and brace and the secondary floor cover as I currently have the moulded under floor tray. This won’t work with the space saver so I will have the flat spare wheel cover to go under the folding floor of the convince pack. So mine was not factory fitted either but I have been assured it will accommodate the space saver. However if you are after a full size spare then this definitely won’t fit.

Thanks Morse.

Can you let me know how you get on? Ill have to wait and see what mine comes with when in arrives and then go from there with the local dealership or with options online.

Pete,
Of course I’ll update you when it arrives. When I placed the order the garage were unable to provide an estimate of how long it would take to get here. I’m hoping it’s quicker that the time it’s taking for the average car to arrive!

Hi
Yesterday, I bought the Inscription pro demonstrator from our local dealer. It didn't have a spare wheel. The salesman very quickly spoke to the spares dept and they produced a list of items that were needed to fit the spare wheel. They are of the opinion the parts were available in the UK and would be fitted before I collect the car later next week. I don't have the detailed list from the printout, but when I collect the car and the balance of the paperwork I will post it all here.

PS I also cancelled the new XC40 Inscription pro I have had on order (with a discount broker) having waited since 10th May and still did not have a delivery date.

Sorry to hear that about your Inscription Pro but congrats on the new car.

I have a feeling that there is a work around on this so will be good to see if it is a flat-spare like above or an inflated wheel.

Hello folks
Newbie here and picking up an ex-demo Inscription end of the week.

It doesn’t have a spare wheel and the dealer has quoted £392 for fitting one ( factory fit is £150 if memory serves).

Does this price seem reasonable and what are you guys being charged?

Thanks

I have just looked at my invoice. My dealer charged £333.33.

Around £400 is what i am seeing online - again another reason I wish I hadn't overlooked it on the options.

Thanks Tom.

I'll see if I can knock him down a few quid -every little helps!

I'm picking my Inscription T5 up on Friday 18th as well. Am strangely excited
