Replacement Spare Tire Mount for Thule Spare Me Spare Tire Mount Bike Rack for a 2007 Toyota RAV4  

Question:

I have the older Thule 963 Spare Me, It wont fit my 2007 Rav4 because of a metal flangefoot that sticks out of back door between wheel to help rest tire on when changing wheel. Is there a newer style mount that I can just buy that will couple my 2007 Rav4 and older style Thule 963?

Expert Reply:

The original Thule 963 Spare Me bike carrier did not work on the 2006 to 2010 Toyota RAV4 because of mounting limitations with the original mounting plate like you have said.

The Thule Replacement Mounting Plate, # 753-3532, is the replacement plate that is needed in order for the older Thule 963 Spare Me bike carrier to be used on your 2007 Toyota RAV4 with factory spare tire.

The newer Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Carriert, # TH963PRO, includes the newer replacement plate which allows this bike carrier to fit on the 2006 to 2010 Toyota RAV4 with factory spare tire. It will not fit if the vehicle has the spare tire mounted back-up camera.
