Renault Clio - Fitting a Renault Spare Wheel Release Clamp Winch - malct

After buying a spare wheel for my 2017 Clio to put in the boot, I have done some research on on Clio cars fitted with spare wheels and how they fit.

I have since found out that they operate by using a wheel release clamp and top winch carrier holder.

I have read that these can cost £250, But phoning around second hand renault part dealers, These are selling for around the £40 mark, But most are from the old pre 2009 models, so unsure if these will be the same the Mk 4.

Looking inside the boot of my Clio, There is a couple of blank plates that are gluded into place where the clamp would fit and not sure on how easy these would be to remove.

Question is, Has anyone fitted one of these Release clamp winches to a Mk 4 clio and any tips on doing this task.

It looks like 3 nuts hold the clamp in place but looking on ebay, its shows a photo with a couple of clips, I dont want to be getting a lot of parts and trying to understand on how it all fits together.

Any help would be great
