Ok purchased a space saver spare for the GLA I know they say they don't fit but wondering if any one has tried removing the lining where the compressor and inflation kit is? is it the diameter or is it just the lift away floor that stops it fitting?

I Did It

Ok purchased a space saver spare for the GLA I know they say they don't fit but wondering if any one has tried removing the lining where the compressor and inflation kit is? is it the diameter or is it just the lift away floor that stops it fitting?
I removed the lining and had to mod the trim panel slightly to allow the boot floor to sit flush. The trim panel needs to be modded otherwise you'll have to force the spare wheel under it and it will distort causing the boot floor not to sit flush.


My spare is a 17" space saver taken out of my old E-Class.
