So following on from our last post we have now sourced a spare wheel, a fiat steel rim 16inch – Fiat part number is 1374100080 and you will need steel bolts to fix on to the hub and the Fiat part number is 1351203080. The tire is the same as fitted to the other wheels a Michelin Agilis camping 225/75/r16 cp. You may find that the parts department will only offer /mention alloy rims. Make sure they search for parts using your chassis number not your vehicle reg number.
We have also decided not to use the supplied beige carpet for the cab, as we feel this will show the dirt up too easily. So we have ordered a cab mat from Carmats4u.com. Opting for graphite carpet which should hide dirt etc more easily, with a red edge colour and black stitching. On contacting them, they sent out by return post, a template which we altered very slightly to fit our cab floor. Dealing with them was very easy and they offered an excellent service from start to delivery. The quality is better than expected and now looks great in the cab. If you want to change your mats for any reason I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
Something else that would be handy, is a sticker by the waste outlet to remind us of the direction to move it for emptying. So a bit of playing on the laptop and came up with this:-
