Re: modus spare wheel release and replacement

Hi all. I had the same problem....... Unscrew the white fixing all the way. Push the cable handle forward and down and the wheel wouldn't budge. ... I removed the cable handle, just yank it up it's only a push fit. If you look closely where you pulled the cable holder from, you can find the ends of a large circlip almost hidden by a plastic tab.... That is supposed to spread apart when you push the cable holder forward and release the wheel. The circlip gets stuck due to non-use or corrosion. Using a screwdriver etc, move the circlip from one side to the other to free it up and the wheel will fall to the ground....It's then an easy job to remove the mechanism, 3 bolts and clean and lubricate so it never sticks again....
