I notice that Highgate have not got any bids yet for the latest set of alloys (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=10416&item=4533916109&rd=1) they're selling, but looking at the pictures - what bit of Saab is it that the centre caps & wheel bolts etc are sat on for this pic?!

are you setting this as a quiz, or do you want to know yourself?
it's certainly an upside-down boot floor (spare wheel well cover) - you can see the hinge cut-outs and a couple of rubber stretchy things for keeping it upright when you want to be under there.
it's also consistant with being a geuine part, as it looks like the usual plywood construction.
i don't remember the 96 or 99 floors having the notch cut out of them - could it be a 95 boot floor? didn't 95s have the spare wheel upright under a cover? - so the notch could be to fit around that layout...

Not relaly a quiz, but a bit of fun...I wasn't quite sure what car it came from,
It's not a V4 part, theye were just flat plywood, and this one is obviously carpetted on the other side. In a 95, it's the base of the dickie seat rather than a flat panel. 99 saloons didn't have a cover over the well at the back of the boot IIRC, just some floppy carpet to line it.
I think it's the bit of boot floor that doesn't lift from a 99 or early 900 combi, with the full size spare wheel. Can't be a later one due to the cut out in the corner, and I think the piece with the two rubber straps/hinges permanently attached was the bit behind the back seat, not the lifting bit. You just unhooked those straps from the lifting bit to remove it. But I'm not sure. Any more takers?

Its from a 99 Combi or very early 900 combi.
The part of tne boot floor that does not lift and when the 165/80*15 spare wheel was in the left boot wing upright (above and behind the NSR wheel).

That's what I thought, apparently it's actually from an EMS...

Yup it's a boot floor form a 99. And I need one as I damaged mine at the USD

...and me a former 99 EMS 3 door owner - I'll prepare to throw myself on my jack-handle.
Actually, if I want to do myself in at the moment, I can just lean in to the boot of my Aero and the weak struts have it down on me, driving the latch into the back of my skull in no time.
You forgot to mention the 95 came in two versions: 5 or 7 persons.
As far as I remember the spare was in the boot (5 persons) or indeed under the rear seat (7 persons).
But, having never driven a 95, I could of course be wrong.

Olaf you are quite correct, 95L (76-78) had only 5 seats & an inch or two extra rear leg room. Spare was relocated to the boot from under "middle" seat.
