This is how the second hand jack and a 16" mini spare from a scrapped Qashqai look like when placed in my Kadjar with the Bose subwoofer:

The fastening rod was too short, so I made a longer one from a M8 threaded rod, a large washer and a M8 wing nut.

The lower mat eventually formed itself after the elevated subwoofer.

There are still room for small things here, especially at the rear sides:

Both upper shelves remain in the correct position.

And finally the optional rubber mat on top.

Many thanks for the tip and pictures re spacesaver in Bose edition.  Had my Signature Nav for a month. Got brand new spacesaver for £125 on e-bay £9 for m8 rod, wing nuts and washers at Wickes, already had a jack and extending wheel brace. Better than the £417 Renault wanted for the kit. Done and dusted!!  Didn't fancy touring Ireland in May with a tin of goo!

Ive got a Signature Nav on order for 24th March. I came from a mazda 3 sport which also had a simular bose system

The sub on my mazda slotted into the space saver spare wheel perfectly and then bolted down.

Not sure if this is an alternate option to source a space saver from?

Also my car has the 19" alloys, does it matter if the space saver is only a 17"?

The space saver rim from the Mazda would have to have the same PCD (pitch circle diameter) and centre bore. Wheels are not interchangeable willy nilly.
The smaller rim size of a space saver is made up with a higher walled tyre so it gets close to the overall height.I believe a 10% variance is acceptable (your only using it for an emergency)
Here's a list of cars that are the same spec as the Kadjar and can be donor vehicles.

Good thinking ...shims are sort of spacers they have to fit on the wheel nuts so that the wheel sits properly  . I know when they fitted them on mine , the car immediately sensed something was wrong with the wheel and gave me a warning message immediately . It cleared after a couple of miles but , if the wrong one was fitted ,I should imagine it may stay on permanently  . Giving the nature of electronic car management it may even shut down the car...may do ,though I don't know . I think the after sale spare wheel kit is about £200 .

I was quoted £336 by my local dealer

Early Mazda 6, Toyota Supra and many others had the same PCD (5 x 114.3). I have a couple of space savers in the shed that I will have to try.

Hi All,

bought this last year from Oponeo.co.uk

Alcar KFZ 7856 6,50JJx16 Quantity: 1 x 42 GBP . Had a tyre fitted locally for £60.00. the wheel rim allows a tyre width of 215.
Amost the same width as my 19" alloy (225).

Hole PCD of the wheel and the offset match the car exactly.

The Bose amp drops inside the rim but I have lost some of the under floor storage in the boot.

I saw this wheel rim with tyre advertised on ebay for about £80.00 more than what I paid for both rim and tyre.

Hey everybody,

I just picked up a 16 plate Kadjar Bose Edition. Love it so far. 

Would a space saver from the next model down also work? Dynamic Nav or whatever it’s called? Has anyone tried?

Have seen some on eBay and am just thinking if it’s an easier option. 

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F142540464794

I haven’t seen anyone mention it on here. 

Cheers

Balu

I have a Bose Edition (19" wheels) and don't worry about a spare wheel or jack being lost due to the brilliant sub-woofer.  I have Renault Rescue (ie RAC) free for the first 4 years, then I'll pay for RAC.  So relax and don't worry.  After all, do you really fancy DIY on a wet cold day?;)

As above its an easy fix to get a 17 inch spacesaver and jack in the boot floor with the subwoofer inside. Having a space saver on board means you can continue your journey as planned.That means a lot to me if it the journey was part of a holiday for example. Then get the tyre  either fixed or replaced ( if it sidewall punctured or damaged) at your leisure and shop around for best prices, black circles for example. 

Yes get the RAC to change the wheel for you as that's a safer option all round ; done that a few times.

It all depends how long you have to wait for the breakdown truck, when I could have the wheel changed and be on my way in about 10 minutes with a spare wheel and jack.

Or just maybe some of us like to be less dependant on the rescue services and help ourselves with a little forethought??

We bought a full size spare as an option with the GTline Clio, so have both options as the pump/glue kit was still supplied.

Picture this, stuck in the middle of nowhere, possibly off road in which case the RAC etc won't atend, listening to superb stereo, which I can assure you the Bose system isn't, or having the wherewithal to fix it or get help to fix it yourself
