Space Saver cable drum

Post by RatBoy » Wed May 20, 2020 9:22 pm

Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help. A tyre company changed my tyre and wound up the cable without the space saver being in place. The cable then became jammed in the drum and he took it off and took it away to be fixed or obtain a new one. He was unable to fix it and has told me all spare parts are at the moment unavailable. He’s probably right about that.

Can a replacement be obtained elsewhere or is it repairable?

It’s a pain running without one with the spare in the boot.

Speak to your local Land Rover parts department and get your tyre numptie to foot the bill

Parts and service departments are open to keep owners mobile (some of whom are key workers)

I purchased a space saver as a spare from a nearly new damaged DS as our 290 cannot have a spare fitted. The breaker that supplied the spare, also provided everything that came with the spare and I have the complete assembly you need. Let me know if you are interested and if so I’d be happy to sell the part on as I was going to list on it the bay at some point .
