Spare wheel carrier
#1
I've done a forum search but as yet can't find an answer - my 2019 petrol comes without a spare wheel carrier, just the pump and sticky stuff arrangement.
I will be using mine around the Balkan countries where I'd much rather also have a proper spare wheel.
Yes, I can shove it in the boot, but I'm wondering if a spare wheel carrier off an older model Berlingo may fit.
Looking underneath it looks quite similar to my older 2010 one, but......... hmmmmm, would one fit? Any ideas?

My 2019 1.5 HDI has a full size spare wheel, so I would thing it could be fitted to your car.

Forgot to update this in case anyone else is interested -- bought a carrier off eBay from a 2020 and the screw holder thing. Made a mistake that the mounting bolt?/screw was too long but managed to sort that out by a visit to the DIY store.
Had to jack (and axle stand) the back of the car up quite a way to get the carrier to fit due to the angle of the slots it mounts to and the angle of the ends of the carrier, but no great problem.
I'd bought anyway a new rim and had a tyre put on it an so now I have what I wanted, plus the pump and sticky stuff option if needed.

Well done. Maybe this thread could now be moved to the SOLVED section?

There's no substitute for a spare wheel.

A visitor to my neighbour realised this at 5pm one Sunday afternoon . . . The gentleman reversed off the drive and somehow split the sidewall of his front tyre clean open on the kerb . . .   obviously the tyre sticky stuff and the supplied pump weren't going to be any help in this case, and as all of the tyre places where he could have bought a new tyre were closed he had no option other than to ring a recovery company who had a system in place to get him a new tyre fitted.
  
A mere 3½ hours later he was off  Sad  . . . he could have been on his way in 15 minutes if the car had of been supplied with a spare tyre!

Can you send pictures of where you fitted the carrier to?

You mentioned you had to jack up the car significantly to fit the carrier on the mounts, can this be achieved using a normal car jack or would a mechanics pump jack be required?

Thanks

It's chucking it down with rain here and as I park on the road, I'll not be getting back underneath it for a day or two at least. What I can do is post a photo of an old Berlingo from the internet that should help, the mountings are just about the same.
The red circles are the brackets with oval shaped holes protruding down from the rear cross member.
The red arrow points to the holding up bolt you undo from inside the boot to drop the frame down.
See if you can line up the brackets from the photo with what you see under the back of your car when looking from the same angle as the photo, i.e. from directly under the rear bumper -

As for jacking it up, I used a normal scissor jack but it was near at the top of its travel and as I raised it I used an axle stand at the side of the jack and raised it hole by hole just in case.

Thank you !

I’m visiting a scrap yard on Friday to pick on up from an 2015 Berlingo van, the scrap guy who also has a new shape Partner Van in his lot reckons the spare wheel brackets are identical.

I tend to feel the brackets may well be the same, but I know for sure the carrier itself has changed over time. Some have a side plate to protect the tyre from the hot exhaust for example. The newest one I have already has the plate attached to the exhaust and thus doesn't have it on the carrier.
