**Wheel not included**
Also compatible with vehicles that are fitted with a tow-bar.
Due to many Parts & Service customers requesting an underbody spare wheel mounting system, we have created this product.
This cradle has been designed and engineered from scratch right here in Taupo. It is hand-built to a very high standard, by a locally owned and operated engineering business.
There is no need to drill holes for fitment, as this product has been designed to mount without any modifications. The product can be fitted and removed without any damage to the vehicle.
Fitting is free when fitted by Drive EV in Taupo. To fit it yourself we will provide you with instruction. Any standard workshop can fit this and should take no more than 1 hour to do so.
Here is a video we made of the fitting of the cradle, so you can see what is involved if you wished to fit one yourself. Youtube: How to fit a spare wheel cradle to a Nissan Leaf
Once the cradle is fitted, to access your spare wheel simply loosen the two rear holding nuts. Your wheel brace will fit these as they are nuts that are identical to your car’s wheel nuts. When these are loosened the rear holding brackets move to the side and the cradle drops down. A second notch has been added to these holding brackets so that lowering your spare wheel can be done in two easy steps.
Please get in touch with any questions. Fits full size spare.
