Here's the paddocks one i used to have on my 90.... hope these help.











the square metal plate on the door fitted directly over the holes that used to hold the wheel carrier in place. when fitted mine, i removed the rubber stopper thing, then offered up the "arm" and marked & drilled the holes, then refitted the rubber.

that way, when you close the door, the rubber thing gets nicely compressed :moglite: and results in a nice rattle free carrier. if you just try to compress it by hand, then mark the holes, you'll never get it "tight" enough.

cheers that info great pics a real help


On my "old" 90CSW I fitted a Bearmach swingaway, which looks remarkebly like the Paddocks one. I scrapped the small metal plate supplied with it and made a larger one out of stainless. This covers the full extent of the LR wheel carrier re-inforcement on the rear door and makes for a better job.

Photos enclosed.

Hope this helps
