Hello
i have a 1992 and im sure this would be the same
To remove the spare tire:
1. Open both of the rear doors. Remove the
access cover from the rubber strip found
behind the left door. Insert tapered end of
lug wrench or tip of jack handle through the
access hole. Turn counterclockwise until the
cable extends enough to allow the spare tire
to be pulled rearward from under the
vehicle.
2. Slide the spare tire to the rear and remove
the retainer from the wheel.
3. To stow the cable/retainer with spare
removed, turn jack handle wrench clockwise
until slack is removed.

dont be afraid to crank on it real hard sometimes they stick.
good luck paul

Hi,

1993 Ford E-150 are not that common in my country and I am not familiar with a Mark III E-150. Nonetheless, to my recollection, most E-150 that I have worked on uses some sort of winch to lower the spare tire. There would be a hole in the rear bumper normally capped. You would need to use and insert the flat end of the tire iron into this hole to fit a slot deep inside. Turning the tire iron would lower the tire through its support cable.Although I seem to recall working on some vans (dont remember if they are E-150s) with the spare tire that have lock/latch that has to be turned 90 degrees.

Additionally, I have asked the assistance of another member of the community of confirm the above and/or offer more detailed information.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
