FORD GALAXY SEAT ALHAMBRA VW SHARAN SPARE WHEEL HOLDER MECHANISM LIFT REPAIR KIT PART NUMBER: X8R0089


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It is a common fault on these vehicles for the spare wheel carrier mechanism to fail. A plastic gear within the mechanism breaks or wears making it difficult to lower / raise the spare wheel from under the vehicle. Our repair kit allows you to resolve this fault by installing our replacement gear; this allows you to repair just the part that fails with an improved design part which will not fail again. 


SYMPTOMS OF FAULT

The below are common symptoms of failure:

The spare wheel only drops a limited distance when unwound.

The spare wheel cable has kinked and does not rewind.

When turning the lowering bolt a clicking noise can be heard from the mechanism and the cable with not lower / lift.

The spare wheel holder mechanism release is not functioning at all.


THE PROBLEM

A PLASTIC GEAR BREAKS WITHIN THE SPARE WHEEL CARRIER MECHANISM CAUSING MALFUNCTION OF THE MECHANISM. 

These vehicles have the spare wheel stored under the rear of the vehicle. The wheel is retained by a cable which can be wound up and down by turning a bolt in the boot of the vehicle. During normal operation the bolt can be turned which lowers the wheel to the floor where it can then be detached from the mechanism. 
It is common for the wheel to be wound up too hard or fast, this is often caused by spinning the release bolt too quickly using a spider tool or a power tool, this leads to the cable kinking or jamming. As a result, a plastic gear within the mechanism splits or breaks a tooth / teeth.

Even with careful use of the mechanism the gear can fail as it is a poor quality part. By nature this mechanism is rarely used and isn’t serviceable therefore even first use of the mechanism can cause this plastic gear to break.


THE SOLUTION

FIT OUR CNC MACHINED BILLET ALUMINIUM GEAR AND RESTORE FULL FUNCTION TO THE SPARE WHEEL CARRIER MECHANISM. 

Replace the poor quality plastic gear with our CNC machined billet aluminium gear. This allows you to replace just the gear component that fails within the mechanism without having to buy a whole new mechanism at vast expense which would just fail again.

Our part is machined to fine tolerances and is a direct replacement for the original and will not fail again. Our part can be fitted simply using our pictorial and video instructions and will resolve the faults noted above caused by the faulty plastic gear. Our kit comes complete with a high quality Cobalt drill bit for separating the panels of the mechanism and stainless steel fasteners for resecuring the mechanism panels. Enabling you to lubricate the mechanism periodically to prevent any future failure.
