It depends on country and spec. If your tyres are RFT then the black shiny section on the left should be empty (it's for a jack and tyre slime). In the middle there is a cutout for your boot cover, it can go underneath diagonally.

My Australian 300 also came with a fold-out box, mesh strap divider/retainer, boot protector, breakdown warning triangle and 5 reflective jackets.

I wish that my USA version had all that!!

I’d favour a boot/floor cover, I do hope you’ve removed for pictures ?

The only thing I removed was the floor cover. My wife had a bunch of cupcakes for a party back there, and there was a small accident with them, was vacuuming out the entire vehicle, while I was at it, when I discovered this issue.

Not used to not having a spare tire there. I used that space to hold the trunk cover, the grocery net, and a few towels. For the trunk, I have Weathertech mat with bumper protector. Since the Weathertech mat can be pretty slippery, I put a cheap rug that fits perfectly in the trunk. I then have couple of collapsible plastic crates that I used to put grocery bags and take out food in so they spill out all over the trunk when transporting. The rug keeps the crates from sliding around. When it gets dirty, I toss it into the washing machine.

I got the plastic crate, stowage net, bottle of oil in a Mercedes canvas bag, first aid kit, small tool kit, locking nuts for the wheels, and the tyre inflate kit with the can of stuff. I think that was it.

Totally. I can understand why some people need a spare but in over 20 years of driving I've had 3 flats, one still drivable to be repaired. For the 2 true flats, one of them I wasn't able to get the wheel off without a gas wrench from road service. So in over 20 years I've only had one flat I could fix myself... I'll take my chances with RFT and better boot space 🙂

I put a 19” spare wheel in mine.....
It does bring a question to my head as I’ve not actually trail fitted,
With the spare fitted, there’s still rim for the junk,

Re the compressor, I have tried plugging in and it blew the fuse, so may be worth checking,

The floor closes and latches by itself, No pressure required to close
AFAik, with the Amg line package, comes bigger front callipers, some say the 18” spare wheel fits, others suggest insufficient clearance, I opted for the T145/80 R19 110 M
Looking at picture I perhaps should clean and bull the sidewalls

Thanks snrbrtsn. It doesn't take up as much room as I'd thought it would, nice work. I'm happy with the extra space underneath, but if someone needs a spare it's good to know it fits.

The first thing I bought was fitted a boot liner / bumper cover from these guys https://www.ukcustomcovers.com/boot-liners/mercedes-benz/mercedes-glc-2015-onwards they're slightly cheaper on their ebay site for some reason. Been in more than 2 years and still good condition. Had the same in my previous 2 Audis as well.

It does make getting into the under floor space a bit more fiddly but in my case I only keep stuff in there I use occasionally, might be more of an issue for others.
