Daft question I know so forgive me. When hunting for a missing book today I had occassion to lift the very bottom flap in the boot. I did not order the spare wheel but was surprised that there is not even a wheel spanner in the tool kit. All there seems to be is the inflation kit a wire to remove the hub cover and a towing eye. Is this the norm, would the spare wheel option include a jack and wheel spanner ?


What do others have lurking down the back ?



Still love my up! 53.6mpg cannot be bad

this was discussed on another thread yesterday, if you dont have the spare wheel, you just have the foam stuff to get to you a garage but means you can repair the tire, you have to get a new one no matter what.
if you have the spare wheel it comes with jack etc etc.

Yep. Same as my 'Take up!' -- just the pressurised foam filler stuff, a tow ring and wheel cover puller wire.

No jack - dealer quotes £27-95 for jack !!

To but spare wheel now ( 1 week after sale ) quoted £105 !!

I didn't order spare wheel either. I was thinking of buying a 14" spacesaver from VW off eBay or from local scrap merchant. Does anybody know if it'll fit?

cheers for that....starting to wish we had ordered the spare too. Never crossed my mind there would be no jack or wheel brace either. Started to build ours this week so no chance of adding it to order!
