Cargo area, right side, behind the panel closest to the rear door. Panel will pop right out.

Thanks. No wonder I couldn't find it. Previous owner decided to use that compartment for something else.

that compartment and the one on the other side is also used for holding water, can be used as fish tanks. (water leaks)

Most wagon spares can be found located in their native habitat: the garage.

Maybe it's being I usually referred to it with "expletives undeleted" so I didn't recognize the term properly.

Fix a dlat doesn't always work. The likelihood of it not working usually increases proportionally to the distance you are from help.


Don't think it would fix that...
Might need to use 2 cans for that!!

Not a problem w/ these cars... but... never use fix-a-flat on new cars with tire pressure sensors in the valve stem! Unless you want to make them EXPLODE. When I worked @ a few car dealers I would see this all the time. The lazy way always costs you more $$.

Care to explain what is going to make them explode?
While there is a standing controversy about the sealer gumming up the TPM, I would love to hear your explanation of things exploding.
Funny, many manufacturers sell cars with TPMS and OE fix a flat in the trunk.

Most econo boxes come with just fix a flat these days, how cheap is that?!

the only issues I have with fix a flat are:
1. Its a liquid, and it's impossible to balance that tire
2. If the consumer fails to mention to the service people that a tire has fix a flat in it, it makes a freaking mess when the tire is dismounted. It's also potentially flammable. Never seen it catch fire, but the cans usually mention that it its flammible. Probably uses a propane propellant.

Other than that, it beats trying to change a tire on the side of the road.
