To remove the spare you need to access tools stored in the back of the vehicle, passenger side storage area. Open llftgate, remove net (if equipped), lift tab and remove cover to tool storage. Attach folding wrench to extension, insert 'chisel' end on an angle through the hole in the rear bumper and into the hoist shaft. Turn wrench counter-clockwise to lower spare enough so you can pull it from beneath the van to detach. Good luck!

Paul is right you can go to radio shack or autozone schucks or any parts store and ask for the removal tool it cost $20.00 tops. Trust me you don't want to undo the dash as the air bag could detonate if you shorted the two wires that can control it and it could kill you.

Testimonial: "Thank you! I didn't even think about the safety aspect of removing the dash. Better leave this to the pros!"
It is not fixed by an aerosol or scent additive to the air in the cabin. It will only mask the smell for a period of time.
Your cause is the air filter for the A/C system. You can buy a new one at local auto stores.
To replace it, you will need to open your hood. On the passenger side of the car, look just under the windshield at the trim panel under the wipers. You will see several tabs holding down this particular side of the trim piece. Using a phillips head screwdriver, gently rotate the screw pieces out of the tab holder (if this doesn't get it, you'll need to use a small flat head in unison to apply pressure to the screw to come out). There are 3. Once these are removes, gently pull the hood rubber gasket seal up and place out of the way. Note: you won't need to remove it from the car, just enough to clear the trim piece. Remove the trim and you will see a filter. Remove the filter and replace. Installation of trim is reverse.
That will fix your mildew smell from the vents. This WILL NOT fix a mildew smell if caused by interior mildew.
Note: The directions to change this filter are also found in your Owner's Manual if you have it. It is a simple procedure and should take about 15 minutes if you are taking your time.
Thanks for the inquiry.

To get at the turn signal bulb, you gain access to it by first removing the headlamp housing which is directly above it. Remove the top bolt and locking pin (as you mentioned), then remove the headlamp housing by pulling it (or pushing it from behind) straight forward to release the friction pressure clip located near the outside edge of the housing. To prevent damaging the headlamp housing's rubber gasket, you may have to first release several of the plastic grille's black plastic clips nearest that housing by pulling upward on the clip heads and removing them; they are re-useable. It's simple and quick to do once you've figured it out. I carry spare bulbs...beats getting a ticket.
