    Please send me a PM with your offer including shipping to 12919 (NY state).

    Thanks !
    My spare tire kit arrived today and I have yet to install it, I will be looking to dispose of my bin, pump but I don't have the selant can, I am in Los Angeles CA. so the shipping maybe a little costly. If interested PM me.
    Thanks,

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    I ordered a spare tire kit from Luke Butler @ Lindsay Cadillac (703-647-8670) this week. Price was still $428.40 + S&H as quoted in Luke's post #139 from last year.

    PM me if you are interested in the interior rear storage compartment that this spare tire kit will replace on my 2011 SRX. I will also sell the electric tire pump with sealant. I am in Springfield MO. I travel to Wichita KS and Kansas City MO regularly. If you are near any of these cities, I can arrange to deliver in person. If not, I can ship for actual cost of shipping.

    Update 01/10/2014: Hidden rear storage insert and emergency tire pump sold to Maxplot in Kansas.

    I did it on my 2013 SRX with a kit from a 2010 SRX (westham) and up now, I have no regrets and my wife always put the grocery bags in the bin with the cover up so they don't spread all over on the rear floor. She really like it. Also, I think it reduce the vehicule weight so may be a better gas mileage and accelaration ...

    Woudl you be able to give me the part number for this kit? I'm in Canada and would source it at my dealership. But would like the number so I don't get the lost puppy look when I ask for the spare tire kit.

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Just a heads up, the US might have a different part # then we do in Canada. I know that has happened a lot for me when buying new GM Parts.
    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Son of a Gun Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Great Pictures and instructions but there seems to be some missing Pictures. Everything after Picture 10 is missing. Could you please post them.

    Thanks.


    Quote Originally Posted by SoCalSRX View Post
    In case anyone in the future wants to install a spare tire kit, I thought I'd document my experience. Overall, it was a pretty simple job. On the beer scale of one beer being simple and five being tough, this gets maybe one beer at most.

    Attached picture 001 shows everything that comes with the kit. (I don't know how to insert images into the body of this write-up. Sorry.)

    The instructions that come with the kit are just "OK." They leave out a couple of important steps, however.

    Step one is to remove the existing tray. This requires that you unhinge the cargo cover and hang it from the attached string/hook assembly. Even then, it sort of sags down in the way. If you have a helper, have him/her hold the cargo cover out of the way while you're working. (Picture 002)

    To remove the existing tray, the first thing you have to do is remove the hold-down nut that secures it in place. It's pictured below, and easily comes out with a Torx T-45 driver. (Picture 003)

    Once you've removed the hold-down nut, you next have to remove the old tray. It doesn't come out easily, that's for sure. I discovered two things...first, you have to lift up the back part of the tray (just behind the rear seats) first and start to lift it out. This is where a helper comes in handy by keeping the cargo cover out of the way. Next, the tray is going to feel like it doesn't want to come out, and because it's essentially styrofoam, you're not going to want to pull on it. The stuff is pretty durable, however, and what's holding it in place is there are tabs at each of the corners nearest to the cargo hatch opening that are inserted under the rear deck. Picture 005 shows one of the tabs, circled. You have to firmly, but carefully, pull the tab out from under the deck. Once you've done that, the tray comes out pretty easily.

    The next step is to insert the long threaded hold-down rod. The instructions are virtually silent on how to do this, however. There's a T-shaped slot in the car (picture 006). The head of the threaded rod fits into that slot, and the rod is held in place by a flat spring. (Picture 010)

    Once the threaded rod is in place, the next step is to lower the piece of styrofoam that will hold the jack, jack handle and tire. Once the styrofoam is in place, insert the jack and jack handle in the slots provided.

    The next step is to place the rectangular trim ring around the opening at the center of the styrofoam that holds the jack and tire. The instructions are TOTALLY silent on this. (Picture 011)

    Next there's a sort of U-shaped bracket that holds down the styrofoam piece where the jack is. That's held down by a wing nut. Picture 015 shows the rectangular trim ring and the u-shaped bracket being held in place by the wing nut. Picture 016 shows the jack and jack handles being held in place by the u-shaped bracket and wing nut.

    The tire and wheel come separately. You'll have to go to your local tire shop and have the tire mounted. Once mounted, put the tire in place and secure it with the large hold-down nut. (Picture 018) Once the tire is secured, put the new styrofoam tray over it, re-attach the cargo cover hinge, and close the lid.

    The last thing to do is put a new sticker with the spare tire information (included with the kit) in the door jamb.

    That's it...you're done! Go have a beer and admire your work!

    I hope this helps anyone who wants to tackle this project!

    All of the pictures are there. There are 10 pictures total that show the installation. The numbers in my text refer to the actual image numbers, but if you look at them in order they line up with the text.

    HTH.
