I bought the 4x4 spare wheel fitting kit (Part No. S5L0071108) which comprises:
Boot Floor Reinforced
3 x polystyrene stowage boxes
Fasteners for 2 of the stowage boxes
Spare wheel securing 'bolt'
Jack
Wheel Brace

On examining the contents, neither the deeper 4x4 tool storage nor the shallower 2x4 tool storage was in the kit. Additionally the tool stowage that goes inside the wheel was not in the kit. When I mentioned to the parts chap that the kit gave me nowhere to safely stow the supplied jack and wheel brace he ordered the under-wheel stowage from the 2x4 kit, which is Part No. 5L0012115D. This was foc and when I collected it he said it was a mistake in the kit by Skoda.

I sourced the spare wheel and tyre separately as that was cheaper.

If you have the Skoda warning triangle it will still fit in the OEM stowage but (at least for me) the wheel prevents doing up the LH retaining strap. It's held firmly enough by the wheel and the one strap and can be removed and replaced with the wheel in place: you just need to lift out the RH stowage box.

Apart from the Adblue tank the pictures don't show much over and above those already provided by The Hood and Snowgood.

Yes, the top of the Adblue tank really is rippled!!

The pictures were showing 10 minutes a go but now they're not.


When I go into Edit, the pictures are there in the preview. I added them by using the 'Insert Image' tag and the direct link from the hosting site. That was after many attempts to drag and drop the pictures; something that had previously worked well (if slowly) for me using Firefox.


Frustrated I am. This bit has taken longer than exposing the parts in the car and taking the pictures in the first place.

edit: remove double post that was prompted by slow response from the server at the time. Perhaps connected to the photos and the fact Bryetian was also editing in the thread at the time?

Photos still there for me. Using IE11 on Windows 10 laptop.

Good photos Bryetian. Illustrate perfectly how the Adblue tank on more recent, Euro 6 diesels, occupies the space where the deep, tool and jack stowage box fits on our older 2WD Yeti.

Interesting as you say, that those ripples occur on the pressing that forms the top section of the tank. That suggests a rushed design and development exercise to invent a container for Adblue. All part of the panic that occurred following Dieselgate.

If you email me the pictures using the address in my signature I will sort it for you.

Thanks for removing two of my earlier, superfluous post attempts Hood / Derek. I presume that was you tidying up the thread.....

We are going to keep having this problem of images being visible on IE11 but not other browsers as long as people use images hosted on http:// sites as opposed to https://. It has occurred a few times since the forum security was upgraded at the beginning of October so we need to find a way around this. For the moment if you want everyone to be able to see the photos please use the Drag and Drop upload to attach them as Thumbnails ( as well as inserting a link if necessary)

I have added the two pictures of the AdBlue variant boot floor to the end first post in this thread which hopefully are visible to everyone on any browser. Let us know if there is still a problem.

Do you have an example of a site that hosts images as https:// ?


As I mentioned, I did try drag & drop and managed to get 2 pictures to load as thunbnails. The third picture hung while uploading; several times.

On Firefox, I can't see the two pictures you've added to the first post.

B*****r. Thought it was okay. They aren't visible with Edge either when I thought they were. Too quick to remove thumbnail so have restored them so should be okay now but still looking for a better way.

Byretian, this forum uses https: which is why I thought if I copied your photos and uploaded them to the forum web space they would be okay. Viking had problems a couple of weeks ago which first raised this as an issue. Imgur has https: and possible others too.

Thanks, I will have a look at that.


In the first post, I can now see the two new pictures both 'in line' and as thumbnails.



I also note that the option for me to edit my own posts has disappeared - or is that option time or following post limited?

Post edit is limited to an hour after initial creation I believe.
OK, thanks.


I've uploaded the two pictures to imgur and wanted to add them to my post on page 5 so it made sense.

I have used the copies I uploaded for Post 1 and replaced the originals in your post on Page 5 so, fingers crossed, everyone can see them. Hope that's okay and sorry posting photos is a bit of a pain.

That's fine, thank you. It's been a bit of a learning curve for me on the uploading of pictures but hopefully sorted now.

Mega is another cloud storage that uses HTTPS, and with them you get 50gb free of charge and your files/photos etc are encrypted. I have used them for several years Mega 50gb

If you need pictures added after the one hour deadline Snowgood and myself can do it for you.
