I don't know about the 172 but in my 171 the spare tyre (the spacesaver type) comes with a large piece of plastic I'm supposed to wrap around the punctured tyre and then carefully place it on the passenger seat. What you should do when this seat is already taken by a passenger the manual doesn't say.......
I always figured this would be a great test if you happen to have a hot date. If she accepts the tyre on her lap wihout any comment then it must be true love and the night will be full of opportunities................
