Yesterday I took a look at my spare and it appears that it is damn difficult to remove. It also looks like it has a very low profile.
I've done this a couple of times just to see what's underneath. I found it easier to push the spare tire towards the front (after removing the screw-on anchor) and lift the back of the tire. It is a very tight fit and will rub against the black plastic panel near the trunk/boot latch area.
Don't do this if you have a hernia.
Cyberdrakon removed all the stuff in there and has a traveling wardrobe instead. Impressive too.
