8G space saver on 9G ?

Just fitted 19" Rages to my 8G so I'm guessing my space save is no good to me now ?

Will the space saver from my 8G fit the 9G as my auntie has a 9G but no space saver as standard ?

Cheers

Thanks for the replies guys

Just whilst I'm here what are my options when it comes to a spare with the rages on my 8G. Do I need to source another rage as a spare ??

Well the problem with that is you can't carry a full size wheel in the boot cavity.

The rolling diameter of the spacesaver should be the same (as the rolling diameter of the 17", 18" and 19" wheel with the correct tyre on is near identical) and therefore you can continue to use it as a spare for yourself.

Cheers Syx, looks like my auntie gained a space saver and lost it again in only a matter of minutes

Correct

You need to do as I did and get the latest £190 kit with wheel, jack and tools (and stickers).

All in the name of weight reduction to save you a few bob at road tax time and to MPG compete with competitor vehicles.


Now correct me if I'm wrong but no matter whether you have 16", 17" or whatever size wheels the tyre depth compensates so the actual outer circumference is exactly the same on all wheels and also the spare?

If it wasn't then the speedo reading would be 'up the pictures' !

RIGHT.

For one final time only....

2012 Model year 9th Gen Civics will have a jack and tool kit and no spare (unless the kit has been purchased). the chassis number will have the letters CU in it.

2013 Model year cars will have no tool kit nor jack nor spare wheel. These cars have the letters DU in the chassis number.

Car doesn't have a build date yet so definitely 2013 model year

I have a 62 plate MY12 Civic, and don't have a jack. Just the pump and foam.

If the dealer knows their business then they will order the spare with tools, mine did. £190.

I suspect it's been removed then. So the left hand jack/tools compartment is empty ?

I just have the black zip-up pack containing the pump and foam, which is clipped to the left hand side of the boot.

Ermm...ah. There appears to be a jack in that compartment I never knew existed.

I will now exit this thread with my head bowed and tail firmly between my legs. Apologies.
