The metal sleeve on the end of the cable,you turn it sideways and push it thru the hole in the wheel. If it is stuck to the wheel just pick up on the wheel then tap the sleeve with a hammer.

It should be underneath the back and you should have a tool to crank it down to the ground, take off the cable and your done.

I can't get the spare tire out of the rack? 2004 yukon


  • Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the spare tire to the ground. Continue to rotate the shaft until the spare tire can be pulled out from under the vehicle and removed. If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower.
  • If the secondary latch is engaged and the cable end is visible, perform the following procedure: 3.1. Tighten the cable by rotating the hoist shaft clockwise until you hear 2 clicks or feel it skip twice. You cannot overtighten the cable. 3.2. Loosen the cable by rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns. 3.3. If the spare tire can be lowered, repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if the spare tire can be removed. 3.4. If the spare tire cannot be lowered, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable is exposed. 3.5. Raise and support the vehicle. 3.6. Place a transmission jack, or equivalent, under the spare tire. 3.7. Position the center of the transmission jack under the secondary latch release button at the center of the spare tire. Arrange the arms of the transmission jack so they will support the tire after it has been released. 3.8. Raise the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is firmly held in place, releasing the secondary latch. 3.9. Lower the tire. If the spare tire is hanging by the cable, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until the tire is low enough to remove.

    I cant get the spare out from underneath. there


    Check your Owners Manual for the location of the Spare Tire Release. Either underneath the carpet, or behind a cover: there should be a Nut shaped Spare Tire Release that you have to turn (should be counterclockwise) which turns the cable mechanism, which will lower the spare tire. Once the cable has been fully extended, pull the spare tire out from underneath the vehicle. Move the tire slightly back "up" onto the cable and turn the "cap" so you can fit the cap back through the hole in the middle of the tire.
    Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

    Cant release spare tire from under car of 2002 mercury villager. no owners manual available.


    Location of the spare tire and tools
    The spare tire and tools for your vehicle are stowed in the following
    locations:
    Item Location
    Spare tire Under the vehicle, just forward of
    the rear bumper
    Jack assembly Under the third row bench seat in
    the tool bag
    Removing the jack and tools
    1. Lift the 3rd row seat cushion.
    2. Remove the jack assembly from the bag under the seat.

    Removing the spare tire
    1. Open the liftgate, locate the U-shaped slits in the carpet, and flip up
    the piece of carpet to expose the hex nut.
    2. Insert the lug nut wrench on the
    hex nut in cargo floor.
    3. Turn the wrench
    counterclockwise until tire is
    lowered to the ground and the cable
    is slightly slack.
    4. Remove the retainer from the
    spare tire. It may be necessary to
    lift one end of the tire to disengage
    the retainer

    Wher is the fuel filter located on a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer and how do you change it?


    Mercury Mountaineer fuel filter is located in front and on top of fuel tank behind two shields. . When you look just behind the front passenger side tire you will see the first shield. Behind that is the second. U will need to buy the fuel line release tools to get the lines off the filter, any good auto parts store will have these.

    Spare Tire


    I had the same problem, but finally figured it out.
    Open the back door, and look for a hole dead center, you'll see the crank plug that holds the tire up.
    Using the jack crank put it through the hole into it and go counterclockwise. You should soon notice the tire beginning to lower. It seems pretty lame, but at least you don't have to hold the spare up with a jack and undo a bolt, which I have had to do on past vehicles.
