I screwed the holder back in and bought a large foam square from Michaels. It holds the board fine and is held in place by the spare tire holder. Cost like $10.

Put groceries and stuff in the trunk no problemo

the bottom of the foam square was slightly hollowed then I shoved it onto the spare tire holder metal thingy.

Why don't you guys that are talking about having a support for the flimsy oem trunk board just build a bigger & stronger board out of 3/4" MDF? It's not very hard to do at all & you can get at least 2 out of 1 large sheet for $30 or so.

Thats probably what I will do. Remove the foam bs from around the sub and jack and build some wood

i might not be seeing things clear, but how by just removing the tire your trunk will be bigger if there is the board thing that separates the tire compartment and the trunk? the board would still be there to delimit the trunk space, and underneath there will be a whole that would be pretty annoying to use on a daily basis cause of lifting the board all the time.. would you guys just remove everything and have the whole structure exposed? i dont get it..

The trunk is bigger if you remove all of the stock trunk items (minus the sub if you have one). You can then build a larger board, which will drop the stock trunk floor height (w/board) & give more room. You could also choose to store things under both the new floor (or old one, if you retained all of the foam & such). Example, my trunk:



If you look at the black plastic, you can see the indentation, where the original floor went to.
