2004 Nissan Sentra, Spare Tire Cover?

I recently found the spare tire cover in my trunk (the panel under the carpet that covers the spare tire & jack) collapsed. I discovered something impeding the rubber lining of my trunk lid, apparently allowing water in, and the spare cover has been soaked and is malformed.

I've been trying to find one for a few days, and no store or website that I've found sells them. I don't need the carpet itself, only this panel. According to the owner's manual, it's the "Spare Tire Cover" and I've found it referenced at one site, but not for sale.

I would appreciate any help locating this part, or a similar pre-shaped firm panel (maybe pre-carpeted?) that can support weight in the trunk if necessary.

    I have that same problem in my car. I have a 2002 Sentra GXE 1.8 and I just put ply wood that I cut in the shape of the cardboard. and that looks great and doesnt let my speaker box fall through.

How to lower spare tire


Find a plastic cover located in the carpet at the back right corner. Lift the cover to locate a nut the size of a lugnut of your tires. Using the van's lugnut wrench, turn nut counter-clockwise to lower the spare tire. Have fun and don't pinch yourself while removing the tire.

Where is the spare wheel on a mini one/


The spare is located up under the car. Open the trunk and lift up the carpet and you'll see a tool kit.. take out the tool kit and remove the cover plate... Secure the lowering rod once the cover has been removed and squeeze on the clips and the tire should just drop right down

Where is the spare tire and how do you get to it


Look in the trunk, there should be a compartment under the rug or mat, lift the mat and you should see the cover of the compartment, lift that cover, the tire should be right there.
