987 / 997 Space Saver Question

Recommended Posts

I have purchased a 987/ 997 space saver (185/ 60 /17 collapsable tyre on 5.5 inch rim) and the foam insert to store it in the car. Also listed for the space saver " kit " is a plastic insert 997 722 801 00 described as "mounting for tool" . Does anyone know where this part fits , and what tools are supposed to locate in it ? Is it suppsed to go in the front trunk or in the foam insert that holds the jack ?

Thanks.

Here is the plastic insert

Here is the wheel located in the foam insert on my 987. The foam insert is different on the 997 as it locates on the rear seat. There is also an insert that contains the jack and jack handle that sits inside the wheel. This is the same part as used on the earlier 986 / 996 Boxster / 911

I think that part is a wheel hanger tool. It just hangs the wheel

while you screw in four lug nuts.

The profile of the plastic seems to suggest it is located into foam as it has some spikes on the rear. Now all I need to do is work out where it fits and what tools fit into it. I'm thinking it will be the wheel hangar that paulspeed mentioned and the screwdriver. I will post a pic once I've figured it out. Thanks again
