Hi Karl
A tool kit in a roll up and a hand wind pedestal jack fits in there ,secured by a large rubber band. Hope this helps

Not exactly, that's a bodge! But it does work fine. The correct part is a big rubber 'O' ring basically. About 3/8" thick. They aren't easy to find so just do the bungy cord thing and it will be fine.

Great. Now I have another part to find... lol.
In my parts manual I do have a part number for a "tool roll securing strap" but its for wire wheel cars.
Any one have a pic of the original tool rol/jack securing rubber band?

My car has one. I can photograph it tomorrow when it's light if you like, if no one comes up with a photo in the mean time.

I said I'd photograph the tool strap and I keep getting home after it's dark! :oops: I'll have a go at the weekend.

Sorry, Tom

Thanks for the pics Tom.
I'm also interested in what would make a suitable replacement.
Anybody know how long these rubber bands are?

The rubber band is quite stretchy, more so than a vacuum cleaner belt. It feels like it's on the limit of hoe far I want to stretch before I'd worry about snapping it, but that's mainly because of it's age. I don't know what the smaller 2nd band does, I'll have to look in the handbook on that one.

My first port of call would be a plumbers supply .Possibly a rubber seal for a 100-150-180mm pressure pipe might fit. Worth a try
