Does anyone know if the rear of the Nuevo is already reinforced to take a bike carrier

We had a Fiamma bike/box carrier on our 09 Nuevo, check with A/S workshop for best position.

looks like, from reading literature, the rear of the Nuevo is ply boarded on the iside of the rear panel
Does anyone know how much of a job it is to get to the inside to fasten the nuts & bolts
In my old Clubman I had to remove the cooker to get access on that side

If you do bolt threw the rear wall make sure you use as large a spreader plate as you can get on the inside wall, another little tip is to use copper/ stainless steel tube cut to the thickness of the wall, drill the mounting holes a little larger to accommodate the tube and then pass your bolts threw the tubes, when you tighten the bolts the tube stops the wall construction squashing up, I used this method when I installed the bike rack  and security handle an my fibreglass walled Autotrail.  Also use plenty of sealer adhesive to ensure there are no leaks around the bolt holes

We have recently had a Fiamma bike carrier put on our 2011 Neuvo.
