    only had the spare for around 6 months, then i had the exhaust changed (vxr style) and had it removed, got £50 for it on ebay (and saved some weight too)

    Had 1 nicked when i first got the bus and then I replaced it.
    It looks as if someone has had another go at removing my spare as I can no longer drop the cradle as the threads on the rod look a bit worse for wear, someone obviously using a jack on it or something to try and disengage cradle.

    When I was researching Zaffy's prior to getting one, this was one of the bugbears most owners seemed to have with them. So as soon as I got mine, I got one of those security bolts. I've also drilled a hole in the hook, so I can stick a padlock around the hook / cradle, stopping them from levering the hook off. Still got my original spare so far. They could probably still get it off if they were determined, but it would give 'em a fight!!

    Got mine nicked a couple of years ago. new steel, tyre and locking bolt cost about £140 from Vauxhall fitted.

    Lost the cradle now since getting a double exhaust, so might follow Mystery Machine's lead and ebay it!

    It's 'cos of the folding seats in the back. Nowhere else for it to go really.

    Mind you, I carry a can of TyreWeld too. Just in case!

    ditto,

    I got mine delivered with the lock fitted. Also when researching the cars I found out about the left hand wiper linkage problem and got that done straight away on warranty
    Be Happy
