As i try to fit my spare tire (full size) in the trunk, it becomes apparent that the black 'tub' needs to be removed.
only thing is, i can't figure out for the life of me how to remove it!
someone help me out here. i don't want to break it...

thank goodness for the FAQ
seems the four 'screws' are stripped or something...
For those who may not be aware of Reed's FAQ site.

OK looks like my dilemna is not over yet.
FIRST - i need a retaining clip thing for the spare tire (I plan on contacting Luke)
ALSO - i noticed this bar sitting underneat the tub. i don't want to just throw it away, and then later find out it serves a purpose, sooooo... what purpose does it serve? it didn't fit back in with the full size spare. is it just there to support the tub before a full size spare is put in?

its just for crash protection. the spare will take that job over for it. i still have my old tub in the attic

ahh ok. so i can safely remove it and store it with my tub?

How much money are you looking at for the entire spare tire upgrade?

I spent just under $90 way back three years ago, but that was from GMPartsDirect.
But, GMPartsDirect is a ripoff. I don't even want to go into it. :canttalk:
Get it from Luke for around a C-note. At least he knows what honesty and customer service is all about. GMPartsDirect can ... well ... bite the big one.
