Some vehicles are equipped with a tyre repair kit instead of a spare wheel.

The spare wheel can be classified as a temporary spare wheel depending on the size compared to the other mounted wheels and country regulations.

Use of a spare wheel that is smaller than the other wheels or together with winter tyres could affect driveability.

The spare wheel is located in the load compartment beneath the floor covering. It is secured in the recess with a wing nut.

In the Corsa van the spare wheel is screwed down together with the floor cover. To lift the cover, undo the plastic nut. There is a spacer between the spare wheel and the floor cover.

The spare wheel well is not designed for all permitted tyre sizes.

In vans the spacer can be omitted if necessary, or the wheel can be bolted down without the floor cover.
