Hi there,

May be someone can help me. I purchased a spare wheel cradle from a dealer and fitted it last week, no problems all went well and fairly quick. I did purchase a TX40 security torx from Ebay for a few pounds and it worked a treat.

I purchased a Ambiance steel wheel on Ebay from someone who had fitted alloys and today had a new tyre fitted.

When I put it in the cradle today it went in fine, fits good and does up tight. The only problem was I found it very heavy and wanted to make sure that the cradle was made for the weight of the full steel wheel and tyre, as it doesn't look that strong, before going too far.

I rang the dealer who said that it was fine but would like to ask if anyone has the full kit fitted is the spare steel wheel supplied exactly the same as the ones on the vehicle. The would then give me piece of mind. Thanks in anticipation - Paul

Hi Paul, The spare wheel supplied with the cradle is the same as the ones fitted to the car (well it's black not silver but I don't think that will affect the weight difference too much)so you needn't worry the cradle is more than capable of taking the weight

Hi Paul, I sourced all the parts separately in pretty much the same way as you did and I've done a few months and a few thousand miles without any problems.

Thameside, my spare has been under the car for ages now and no problems.

Dasycneme, the 4 x 4 has a spare wheel in the well and the 4 x 2 has a puncture repair kit! If you want a spare in the 4 x 2 you need to seek out Karl here on the forum.

hi all - re spare wheel cradle - does the plastic cover go under or over the actual wheel/tyre please
i chose to put my plastic cover under the wheel to protect the tyre from the road or anything that gets under the car. but i dont think it really matters

Hi All,

I'm new at this so please bear with me. I want to get a spare wheel kit for a Dacia Duster 4x2. I have read that some members sourced the parts separately. Can you help point me to the right direction on where to get the kit. Is it easy to install for someone who does not usaully do these.

Thank you.

The kit can be sourced from Karl who works for a parts company. Have a search round for him in the threads about parts and you will find his phone number. The kit is a snip to fit, the part towards the front of the car fits into premade holes and the rear part screws into the car where there is already two screws that need removing. You will need a special screwdriver which cost me three quid.

Check out this thread for some chat about the cradle kit http://www.daciaforum.co.uk/topic/684-4x2-spare-wheel-kits/

and yes, it's an absolute doddle to fit. Here's how http://www.daciaforum.co.uk/tutorials/article/16-spare-wheel-kit-retrofit-to-your-duster/

Best of luck with it.
