    Default Missing.....

    Took wife's Zafira GSi to stealer for waranty work, when I go back to pick it it
    up, i'm told that there isn't a spare wheel , can't say that i've ever
    looked for it, car is never left anywhare, usualy in the garage when not in
    use.

    It is fixed up in place, i would have thought if someone has nicked it, why
    would they put the cage back up after??, you would just drop the cage get
    the wheel and go??..

    Stealer said £140 for a new wheel/tyer and anti-theft mod??, so think it's
    going to be one from a scrappy, and a mod kit, put her a can of tyerweld
    in there for the timebeing.

    Unfortunately all too common on the Zafira. Major design booboo by Vx by not fitting any sort of locking device on the cage. I believe they finally modified it so that it was locking.

    I know one dealer was replacing something like one a week at the height of it!! Also stories of poor sods broken down by the roadside, go to get the spare and WTF!!, they find it's not there!! Not fun.

    Same happened to me in my old ford escort van, Three of us lived in the same street with the same vans. Got up one morning and some git nicked the lot.

    I look at that many MPVs and vans with the the spare wheel and tyre missing from underneath, 90% of the time when I tell these people it's not there, they have no idea when it went missing . They do anti theft kits for about 100 pounds, but it means drilling a massive bolt hole in your boot floor pan.

    Very common problem on French cars too. They all have under bumper spares.
