Question Do MY92 Griffin's have TCS ?

I bought a griffin to use as daily transport, i checked the spare wheel and it has a space saver and not a TCS spare wheel ? now i know that non tcs's have the skinny space saver and tcs's have a 175 70 15 tyre and rim, i need to know does my car have the wrong spare ?? When i turn the key the abs + tcs lights come on and go off after the car has started, but it doesnt have a tcs sticker on the fluid reservoir like my cse has got that defo has tcs ??

yes, your car probably has TCS...all 1992 9000Ts have it (at least in the US they all do).

When in doubt look at the throttle body and if it is large and has plastic cover thing on the top then it has TCS.

Also, I had a 1993 9000CDET with tcs and it had the little "donut" spare, I didn't know they were every supposed to have a full sized one

I'v looked at both of my owners manual's and they both say that TCS cars have a normal size steel spare wheel with a T175/70 R15 tyre and that non TCS cars have a "compact spare wheel", my cse has tcs and that has the normal size tcs spare, i think my griffin has tcs so it looks like i will buy a tcs spare, just to be safe! Thanks

I don't see why they would have different sized wheels. My aero has the space saver, and I think i will remove it, and use that space for something different.
