Thanks chaps.

Took the junk out of the boot, and lifted the carpet up, and 'hey presto', it's in there next to the jack, with that little wirey thing for getting the plastic inserts out. Space saver wheel in there - never been on.

I always keep a tyre inflator / compressor in the boot, in case anyone was thinking 'he never checks the pressure on his spare' h

Someone I know has a second hand RNS510 they are selling at a very good price. They had to take it out their T5 as they were having the following issues...

I told you, you're the car master and I'm anything but... :happy2:
