Hi thanks for accepting me into your forum.
Picked up my Auto 4 x4 SD4 Dynamic yesterday.
Lovely car, my wife's been away all day today in it lol.
Disappointed in finding out it didn't have a spare wheel

Thanks, it's early days yet. Traded in my BMW X6 3.0 xdrive.
I live in Spain and the speed bumps here are a nightmare and
with the X6 sport suspension and low profile wheels. Not good

I've noticed the LED bulb is out on the handle on the drivers door.
Has anyone had to change the Bulb, if so how. Thanks

Welcome Alalro.
It doesn't come as standard with a spare wheel and we try to advise people to add it on to their order from new, but I'm guessing yours is used??
You probably have the gunge stuff and pump, but you can retrofit the spare space saver wheel....it just costs more than it would have it was done at the start.
Nice looking Evoque though.

Hi Sorcerer, yeah it's a 2013 and I'm thinking about the spare wheel option,
I just don't fancy the gunge option.

May be you could find one at a breakers. The Evoque wheels are pretty much interchangeable with Freelanders, several Ford models including the Focus and Mondeo and modern Volvos and Jaguars apparently. A space saver wheel from one of those models or possibly even a standard fairly narrow version wheel if it fits the well might work. You'd need to find a jack and wheel brace, but it's a fairly bog standard looking scissors jack.

Hi Andy, I don't think finding a wheel is the problem, it's going to be replacing the foam boot well.

Ah, haven't seen inside one without a spare tyre - don't know how easy it would be to adapt.

I could post a picture of the layout in mine if it would help?

I looked at changing the foam in mine and it doesn't look like a 5 minute job.
