Hi, would anyone know where to get the foam filer/inserts for carrying a full size spare instead of the horrid space saver, without paying the almost 100 quid that Ford want!?

Reason I ask is I have a spare alloy (15"), also got the space saver, but won't use space saver after one collapsed on me a few years ago. (I had done less than a mile on the A217) travelling at under 30mph.

Alloy is in  the wheel well, but as expected, it sticks up a few inches. I have the smaller carpet, just need the foam packing. There are none in my local breakers yards, I already looked lol.

Thanks

Pete

I believe "Lenny" has done this to his Focus , so he should be able to guide you for part numbers.

Thanks Paul mate,
I've got the kit for mk2 and mk2.5 2005-2011
It costs over 150 pounds from ford,
Consists of a different shaped carpet, longer wheel clamp rod, and two sections of polyethylene spacing,
My advise keep an eye on eBay as some sellers don't realise the value

Hi Gabbo, I'm actually in Hemel Hempstead, although originally from Wales, lol.

If you have the foam inserts, I would gladly swap them for the brand new and unused space saver I had with the car when we bought it. I have a spare alloy for the car, hence the need for the inserts. Let me know,

Regards

Pete
