    Hi All,

    Just collected my '17 Leon SC FR 150 and I'm in love (slight upgrade from my 1.2 2005 Ibiza :yes:). I checked the toolkit under the boot floor and the front-most slot is empty. I found an image of the complete toolkit and the item I'm missing is the red case in this image: http://www.recsoparts.nl/Webwinkel-Product-221898479/Seat-leon-krik-set-5F0012109A.html

    Does anyone know what this is? I can only assume it's a market-specific safety kit or first aid kit?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the response. Yeah it could be that, I just wondered if anyone knew for sure. I kinda want whatever it is, purely for OCD purposes :roflmao:

    Does it not mention in the user manual in the tool kit section, what it is?

    Very slightly off topic I would swap that kit out for the spacesaver wheel kit. I never trust tyre weld. There is still room to retain the compressor and store it in the tyre recess area.

    I've had a look through both the english and french versions of the manual and couldn't see anything!

    I'd be very reluctant to buy a car that can't take at least a space saver. Have full-sided spares in all our Seats.

    I'm with you on that one, I always wangled an alloy wheel spare into my deals back in the days when they gave a steel spare as standard. Never had a pump kit, always at least a space saver spare.

    For the "you never know" moments I have in my boot a lightweight racing trolley jack, a rechargeable impact driver gun, a Noco battery starter and both a plug in inflator and footpump as well as the all usual oil/coolant etc stuff.

    That's a lot!

    You shouldn't need the impact driver if you've torqued the nuts in the first place. Oh, another thing I carry is a spare plastic dodah for pulling off the wheel nut covers. If you break or loose that you'll have a heck of a time getting them off.

    I wouldn't carry coolant as water will do until you get home. If you carry jump leads then every passing car is a battery starter ;0)

    On long trips I take a 2L bottle of water (then don't have to worry so much if it does spill in the boot). And one of these, so I don't have to worry about finding a donor car (assuming it works the one time I need it).

    They do work, as even after 5 months in the boot mine was still showing full charge and started one of our office diesel vans no bother.

    I work on the assumption that water is not hard to find.

    Years ago we went on a cycle trip, some off-road over a big hill then along a canal path for about sixteen miles. A guy joined us who was new to the game and never done anything like this. He had a big packpack on and while we were up the hill he was pulling stuff out of it. He had two 3L bottles of water. TWO! I said to him 'where are you going, the moon?' He also had a large can of WD40.
