Thule Spare Me Spare Tire Mount Bike Rack Review – 2009 Toyota RAV4 – etrailer.com


Today on our 2009 Toyota RAV4, we’re going
to do a test of the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Carrier, part number TH963XTR. Where we can install our carrier, we’ve already
gone ahead and removed the spare tire cover. Now let’s go ahead and remove the spare tire
so that we can fit our adaptor plate. Now that we have the spare tire off, we’ll
go ahead and fit on our adaptor plate and then reinstall the spare tire. With this spare tire reinstalled, we can now
go ahead and slide on our bike carrier and tying it down with the locking knob. With the tightening knob tying down and in
the locked position, our carrier is now secured to the vehicle. Let’s go ahead and load up a bike so we can
see what it looks like with a bike installed on our carrier. First, I’ll take my straps off the cradles
and make it easier to install the bike. In just a few simple steps, you can see how
our bike is loaded up and we’re ready to hit the road. Now let’s go ahead and show you how we can
still access the rear cargo area. And there you have it for the Thule Spare
Me 2 Bike Carrier, part number TH963XTR on our 2009 Toyota RAV4..

  1. Mari Mari, we honestly don't know. We work with vehicles built for the North American market only, so don't know much on models outside of this region like the Ecosport.

  2. Hey, I know this is sort of an old video, but I was wondering if this product was compatible with the 2008 Toyota RAV4. Thanks.
