Remove Spare Wheel Compartment

Hi,
Is it possible and safe to remove the polystyrene bit from the spare wheel compartment? Looks as though it's just held in by a screwed in piece of plastic, but could it be connected to something under the car?
I have an inflator and sealant that came with the car and keep them in the middle compartment.
I want to utilise the wheel space for camping bits and bobs and want to know if that's safe to do as well.

Thanks in anticipation.
Doreen

Yes, most definitely. My polystyrene insert is in the shed.

I was wrong once but then I could be mistaken.

Thank you very much for the reply. Can't wait to get some stuff in the space. So wish I'd thought of this years ago. 👍

don't forget that when the rear seats are up, there is quite a lot of space below their seat squabs. but careful not to fold them when there is stuff under them, - they will jam, and likely dislocate the lowering mechanism
