Don't use the Gunk; call Nissan Roadside Assistance.(RAC)
Usage of Gunk renders tyre unrepairable, and will probably contaminate the TPS Valve too.
If outside of warranty, Roadside Assistance is provided "free", if you continue to have your QQ
serviced by Nissan :roll:[/quote]

Just wondering, what number do you call the RAC on and what reference is used in the absence of a normal membership card ? Is it the vehicle registration ?

The number to call is 0800 246820 if in the UK & quote your registration number. They may want your VIN No. too. If you have a Nissan service the RAC facility is offered for a twelve month period from the date of service

this gives a lot of space, at the back is a compressor , torque wrench net triangles etc etc the foam is disgaurded and lagged and then 8mm plywood either sidwe with grey mtl. inside the wheel it is deep. at the visual back end if free for bags etc the divider is aprox 22mm wood cut to take the wheel in the centre .
i made this because in spain it takes 3 working days to get a tyre, on a 900km jurney it is self explanitory. on the left hand corner below the ply in the corner is fitted the jack and effects our of site . to lag the back i remover the boot sill it has two black push in centre clips angd pulls up. now i have a lot of usefull space and now, if you can afford it i reccomend this (for the 19" wheel ) and now with my trolley jack can rotate the wheels to get even wear inc the spare. hope this is found usefull,

the floor boards are not affected but the wheel can give them a support as well the jack is a just tight fit underneath the lh corner , and the wheel is positioned forward in front of the wheel is the amazon torque wrench that has the spanner extention and locking wheelnut key and plastic extractor the case fits tight and slightly crushed and so it wont move very easey to fabricate much simpler than mine it fits in the existing slot and because all this is out of sight,( the white strip on the right is only the sun)

the pressure for a full size wheel is the same, mine is 2.3bar.to rear 2.1 bar cold. the spacesaver (that does exactly not save space with all the silly foam, and takes nearly all the room is normally much higher, the pressure max of a tyre is always on the side wall . i think with the spacesaver is about 65lb the tekna boot that i have adapted is my normal 19"tekna wheel and has a lot of extra room inside the wheel as well. the balance weights need to not be disturbed. i tried swapping the 19" tekna wheel back again and i did NOT DO the 20 mins tickover to recalibrate the sensor, and the sensor worked immediatly (tekna premium july 2015) i was quite supprised i dont know if the other full size wheels give so much practical inner space, i think its well worth trying one? the wood divide is about 22mm x 1009mmx 12.7mm i think, its easey to neasure for the sizes.
