    Have them check it out when you collect your DC battery components.
    Let us know, cos my spare just cost me a small fortune.

    I use a bicycle cable lock through the spare rim and around the chassis.

    Fair enough. The Scorpio is going to need a small angle grinder to cut through the cable end if the shopper hasn't opened the rear door. so he can also cut the lock cable same time.
    I'd really like to see an affirmative dealer-proof lock.

    I see there is a true at the spare wheel holder that has a wheel nut so if its long enough to go through the A-Line rims i will get a lock nut set with 5 nuts to use for all wheels

    I have seen YouTube clips of guys stealing spare wheels in a matter of seconds. How is this done? How is the chain cut above the tyre? I've looked at the mechanism that retracts the tyre up to the chassis and I just can't see how they steal it so quickly.

    My solution as we took off the old stud and welded a longer rod ont to the place and welded the original stud at the bottom so a 12 1.5 lock nut would fitt.
    Adding a bicycle wire lock 🔐 to.

    hi. I fit a bolt and lock nut next to the wheel winch. when you pull the wheel into position the bolt uses the rim hole. then I put double lock nuts on and tighten with socket and spanner. It take a while to get spare wheel of when needed. You have to go under the vehicle.
