Yes, go to a breakers and get one complete - it only has to do a few miles until the puncture in the normal wheel has been repaired.

As the Mokka has not been around long, I wonder if there are many being scrapped yet

I can't believe the wheel size is unique to the Mokka, so I'm sure plenty of Vauxhall models will yield a suitable spare. Make a note of the wheel size and what space saver sizes would be suitable and pop in to a scrappy and pick one up much cheaper than eGay. :y

I have used these people in the past:-

They put out tenders to all of your local breakers and email you a list of those who have what you are looking for, with prices.

My sister Kathleen accepts she needs a spare wheel. She brought her car here this afternoon. The spare wheel space is 29" diameter, 9" deep. Road wheels are 26" diameter 8" deep; so far so good. She does not plan to change a wheel at the roadside at 77. so does not want jack or wheelbrace.

On e-bay I have found a Mokka steel wheel rim for 64.95 and a wheel with tyre for 144.85, both free delivery.

Has anyone any better suggestions?

Hunt around, you can get a Mokka spare wheel with tyre and tool kit for about 130-140 (sometimes less but depends on timing/luck), no other Vx spare fits sadly.

There is a spare wheel well and it will fit the 18 inch wheel with a deflated tyre, 19 inch should also fit although obviously you can just pop it in the back for the short trip to get it repaired/replaced.

And yes, as per many of the newer GMs. they are a stud and nut fixing which get torqued to 140Nm (from memory)
