    actually probably not that many kits have been sold... we've never sold one... luke's probably sold a bunch due to this thread, but not that many if you take the total number on the road into account

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    looks like these kits have gone on backorder again
    GM tells me late february 2011 is when they expect to have more available
    there are dealers who still have it in stock, though so it is possible to get in the meantime, but will take a bit longer since those dealers will have to agree to sell back their parts to fill any new orders

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    well actually if you want one you can get one... luke at lindasy has two in stock... and there's about 50 other dealers that have them in stock

    if i placed an order it would actually come through one of those dealers ... they could sell it (through GM) to us on a first come first serve basis ... whoever sees my purchase first and acts on the sale opportunity first would get the sale...

    so it's not exactly a 90 day wait... just that long until GM gets more into their warehouses...

    and that's really is an indication of low demand... GM just doesn't sell enough of them to really care to speed up the restocking of the warehouses since there's no need
    the 50 dealers who still have them in their stock are acting as a secondary warehouse for GM so they don't need to speed up the restocking of the parts warehouses since the dealers overstocked themselves in the first place

    i would guess that less than 1 in 100 SRXs have opted to install the spare tire kit maybe closer to 1 in 1000

    if tomorrow there were 1000 orders across the country for this kit then maybe someone at GM would put this part at a higher priority

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Nevermind... finally found it back a page or two.

    Anyone have the current part number for the kit handy? Is this a kitted "service" part, or an "accessory"?
    Thanks...

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    service part, not accessory (although it probably should be an accessory... to me that's really a technicality that doesn't really matter that much)

    the part number is up a few posts (#89)

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    With the spare tire kit installed, is there still enough room to store the cargo management gate in the clips attached to the underside of the lid?

    Thanks!

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    I don't believe so. There's no available room under mine, anyway.

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Captain: Did you have to remove the clips on the underside of the cargo lid after you installed the spare tire kit? If not, I'd think that the gate might fit...

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    I didn't have to install a spare kit, all Canadian SRX's come standard with spares.
    But, looking at it again, i think there is room, and the foam covering the spare seems to have a shape formed in it that would probably fit the cargo fence!

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Just wonderin', could a person save a few bucks and buy one of the donut tires and a rim instead of paying $400-500 for a kit? I don't even know if one can buy the donuts at local tire stores. I probably will not buy a spare tire kit. If I should have a blowout I suppose I would just tell roadside assistance folks to bring a replacement tire with them.
