    Smile some one nicked my spare wheel

    yes one more Zafira owner now missing there spare wheel Over £100 for a Crown Vauxhall to put right for new Rim
    I've since spoken to customer care who say they will pay for locking device and fitting.
    the funny thing is they only nicked a wheel with a slow puncture from my company Astra good luck selling that as i have sent my spare wheel away on tuesday morning
    if you get offered a spare wheel thats Flat on ebay its mine
    this morning i went to see a mate at the brakers that had a zaffy in a few weeks ago and got my self a spare wheel
    cost me £25 for a new wheel out of the brakers from the boot of a zafira Gsi

    I think i will lwave the alloy wheel at home now or in the boot of the car

    Sorry Danny I must be a bit on the blonde side today, but how does someone steel a spare wheel? and why? is it a spare alloy or worth something to someone else?

    If you cannot respond to this thread then PM me.

    I only ask out of pure interest.

    Cheers

    Question Customer Care Number?

    Can you post the number for customer care, I want confirmation they will fit this to my Zaffy too.

    Cheers,

    Common problem you'd be used to if you ever drove a french car. Either your spare is gone, or the rim is so rotting with rust it falls apart when you go to use it (see Peugoet and Renault).

    i cam out a couple of weeks ago to find a locking wheel nut remover on from front off side alloy.

    seems that its useless due to the spinning collor but somebody has had a go and by the looks of it the ****er could get it off so just left it. nothin seems safe
