Re: Spare Tire Carrier

This slot has been filled. Thanks.

The purpose is to make a gen2 spare tire carrier so that I can unload the last five assemblies as gen2 product.
Thanks,

Sorry, but this project was never commercialized, since the interest was low and the cost too high.

Re: Spare Tire Carrier

I'd prefer to get this as a complete kit - hardware, installation, wheel, tire, jack, handle - and installation. For that I'd probably pay $350, maybe $450 if there was some kind of warranty, for any more than that it would have to have a way to raise/lower the spare without crawling under the car.

Re: Spare Tire Carrier

Just to reconfirm: US Nissan Dealerships CANNOT order non-US market parts. I just received a call from a guy looking for 403001YA7A. Anyone wanting this will have to consult a dealer outside the states.
Thank you.
LEAF spare wheel (rim)
Part number 403001ya7a
66.1mm center hub diameter
Bolt pattern 5 x 114.3 or 5 x 4.5 inches
Can be ordered from a Nissan dealership outside the USA or Canada

Re: Spare Tire Carrier

Almost 10 years ago, I started this thread about a “spare tire carrier” project. I had this installed on my very first 2011 Nissan LEAF, and maybe my second 2012 Nissan LEAF (don’t remember). My third LEAF was a 2017.

Now (October 2021), I’ve purchased a 4th LEAF, a used 2011 model that will used to drive the 10th anniversary of BC2BC electric vehicle rally from Mexico to Canada.

I just mounted the old spare tire carrier on the car, and made some minor improvements to the unit. The tire drops out of the bottom with a cable, and a small “winch” sucks it back up.

Is this a product anybody would have an interest in? It was hard to get people interested in it when the cars were brand new in 2012, so I can’t imagine that has changed much.

I have no idea what changes, if any, would be required for a 2013-2021 LEAF. The 2011-2012 were more complicated because there was an electric parking brake mounted in the same spot, so 2013-2021 should be easier!

Here are some Nissan parts (and their prices in 2012) that would be associated with this project:

SPARE WHEEL / TIRE:

$140.40
Tire - T125/90D16 98M

LEAF spare wheel (rim)
Part number 403001ya7a
66.1mm center hub diameter
Bolt pattern 5 x 114.3 or 5 x 4.5 inches
Can be ordered from a Nissan dealership outside the USA or Canada

-or-

$184
Nissan Altima 2002-2006 spare wheel (rim) part number from any USA Nissan dealership
Part number 40300-L31010, 66.1mm center hub diameter

LIFT / JACK:

LEAF jack part number is 99550-3ND0B and sells for UK £233.00 ($357 plus VAT and shipping and import duties)

-or-

$33.08
2002-2006 Nissan Altima Jack: 99550-L31001

TOOL KIT:

The tool kit 99501-4J800 sells for UK £113.00 ($173 plus shipping and government fees/taxes). You already have a lug wrench in a USA spec'd LEAF, so you shouldn't need this.

-or-

$7.15
Nissan Altima 2002-2006 Lug wrench: 99545
