Spare wheel hanger

Mine is missing and going to look and order a 2nd hand one next week. I presume this is the hanger as i have two but what hole for the pivot pin?

Re: Spare wheel hanger

Mine has three holes and the hanger is in the middle one.

The two outer holes are pressed through to form a raised boss on one side.  The middle one that mine uses is just a drilled hole.

Perhaps different mounts for different batches of silencer, axle, etc?

Or maybe for the ones that have 14" rather than 15" wheels

So there is two sizes. I was looking the other night as i have 195/70/14 but when searching 15" kept coming back what was confusing.

Re: Spare wheel hanger

Looking at the rust under your van indicates some gloop might be in order. I have been using https://www.lanoguard.co.uk/products/bo … r-care-kit and Fluid Film for treating rust. It’s lanolin based, so if you’re partial to sheep, it has a nice aroma.

I had an inner wing on a 405 welded up, just behind the front wheel. I coated it with the grease version, and warmed it up with a heat gun to spread it. In the following three years, if you scraped the steel with a fingernail, it was shiny steel behind. It’s ironic it later failed the MOT because of rust on the BACK axle. That was the end of life. Doh!

Re: Spare wheel hanger

The other van is overdue sealer again also. Ill wait and see how the MOT goes on the disparch. If a pass ill do that but if wanting lots of work ill just get another. Mine is just for work unlike if it was a camper i would take more care of it.
