I have a question!
You're driving along happily on holiday in some remote part of France en-route to Germany, and you suddenly realise you have a puncture!
OK, you stop, empty the boot and remove the "handy" space saver spare tyre!
You inflate it, jack up the car, remove the now useless wheel and fit the spare! Fine! And then it starts to rain!!!
NOW, you have a car full of bags etc for your holiday, and even perhaps a fair maiden in the passenger seat.
My question is - where on earth do you put the large and now useless wheel you have just removed from the car?
My hopes of a European trip this summer is in serious doubt unless I can find a solution to this 'little' problem!!
And the answer is! ----
Well, I think the answer is actually a combination of all the very kind replies!
First of course is good Euro assist.
A bag to put said knackered tyre in to.
I have found that my local Halfords (car accessories shop) has cans of tyre repair stuff that "they say" will not damage the tyre!! So a couple of them for sure.
Lastly, I may get a boot rack as it could come in useful at some stage, apart from possible tyre carrying duties! I actually think they look pretty cool when you're touring!!
Of course I would remove said bag if opening the roof!
As noted by my friendly 767 jocky, I will for sure have my top off whenever possible! Surely that's one of the main reasons for having an SLK!!!
If/when I have complete my escapade, I will of course post a sysopsis on SLK WF!
The route I'm thinking of is something like ---
Channel tunnel - Mons, thence either a quick visit to Paderborn, and or then to the Rhine area south of Koblenz, then back to the WW1 battlefields area. That lot should keep me a busy for a while!!
Thanks again for all the advice etc.
Prost mit einer kleiner pils!
