If you’re driving your New Defender mostly short distance and in city traffic, you will most likely have thought about removing the enormous spare wheel from the cargo hold door. For one, it impedes your all-round view in dense traffic and when you’re parking it makes your already sizable Defender that much longer.
So, if you decide to do without your spare wheel, we have an equally elegant and flexible solution for you to cover the wheel mount openings in the rear door. Two perfectly fitted black steel covers - available in smooth or tread plate – are simply screwed into the original mount holes, making your Defender’s rear look like nothing’s missing. Should you need your spare wheel re-installed for longer trips, removing the covers is a matter of minutes.
Furthermore, if you wish to paint the covers in your vehicle’s color, it is a perfectly simple job for both paint professionals and DIY enthusiast. The black powder coating serves as a perfect primer layer.
2 x aluminium sheets, black powder-coated, available in smooth or corrugated.
The screws may only be tightened hand-tight! Max. 5Nm!
