Try this. Unscrew the bolt one turn, get under the car and pull down on the tire at it's side. Do this a few times till the screwing of the bolt drops the tire. If the tire has not been dropped in a long time the cable starts to rust. You have to give it that initial push. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.
Since the spare is mounted under the rear of the car, Its not easy...you have to assemble the long crank rod out of its two pieces, then feed the rod through the hole in the top of the rear bumper and lock it into the mechanism that holds the tire in place. Once the crank rod is locked in, lower the tire towards the ground. Once the tire is low enough, you can crawl under the car and release the tire from its mount. The hardest part is locking the crank rod into the spare tire mechanism through the hole in the bumper.
There is a left-hand and right-hand locking mechanism. One is in tool tray (left), and other (right) ishidden under the plastic tray far right side. Remove the wing nut that holds try in place and then nut that holds up spare tire carrier is under there.
Hello! Here is procedure to remove spare tire...Guru...saailer
Park on a level surface and put on the emergency brake. If the car is near the side of a road, switch on the hazard lights.
Locate the tire repair kit. It consists of a jack, a jack rod
and a wheel nut wrench. In the regular cab, pull the entire seat bench
forward. The tools are located behind the drivers seat. The King cab
model has a tool case located directly behind the driver's seat. The Crew cab stows the tools behind the back bench. Pull the bench forward and remove the tools.
Insert the square end of the jack rod into the square hole in the nut wrench. This gives the jack rod a handle.
Find an oval shaped hole in the back of the truck under the
middle of the tailgate. Look through the hole and find the winch for the
spare tire. It is a circle with two notches.
Insert the T-shaped end of the jack rod into the hole. Slip the T-shape into the double notched circle of the winch.
Turn the jack rod counterclockwise to lower the spare tire to the ground.
When the tire is completely lowered to the ground, remove the center retainer chain and pull the tire out from under the truck.
Wind the jack rod clockwise to completely retract the retainer chain
There is a crank tool in the black bag that is with the spare tire. The tool is hooked on one end and it slips through the back of the truck under the tailgate and above the bumper that you wind down and the tire is hooked by a chain. If it is frozen then you will need to cut the end off of the piece that holds the tire against the bottom of the bed.
The spare should be under the vehicle and it releases by removing a little 1/4 turn cap just inside the rear hatch area and on the floor..You then use the lug wrench to turn the bolt inside the small well under the cap in a counterclockwise direction and the spare will drop down so you can unhook a catch underneath the bumper and lower the rack to the ground and pull the spare out--To reinstall you reverse the process...If you turn the bolt too far it will separate from the sleeve into which it is attached and the spare will quickly drop to the ground--If this happens be sure to reinsert the bolt into the sleeve before attempting to reinstall the spare..
Drive it under 45 miles per hour. The dough nut spare is designed to just get safely to a place to repair or replace the original tire. So as far as the question of how far can I drive the spare? As little as possible.
Their is a hole in the pannel below the tailgate you put the bar from the jack into it their is a chain holding up the spare wheel when you turn the bar the spare wheel lowers on the chain to the ground. Depending on the year of your Rodeo the bar may go under the pannel and not through a hole so check underneath behind the spare wheel and you will see how to turn it.
