SOURCE: Removing Spare Tire

I had the same problem and the shop I took it to couldn't get it off either. But I opted for them not to cut it off and I took the truck home to diagnose what the problem was. So to make this short, I got the spare down and the only way you can do the same is by using a flat head screw driver, pliers, and some "Deep Creep" penetrating oil. 
First: if you have the tire down the standard 2" or so, take your pliers and pull at the base of the cable "downwards". (the cable should free from the bracket under the tire that holds it up).
-Then spray penetrating oil around the bracket as this is what is causing it not to release. In the manual it suggests pushing it back up with the jack until it clicks to allow it to come down. Most likely this will not work as dirt and corrosion will freeze the mechanism that acts as the secondary lock. 
-Take your jack and lift up your spare, holding the weight on the rim and not the bracket attached to the winch. This should free up the winch to allow movement. Then taking your flat head screw driver and you will likely need a flash light, look up into the hole where the cable comes from. You will see there are two little teeth attached to it inside holding it to the frame of the winch. First try prying the teeth away from the lip of the hole to allow the bracket to drop. If this doesn't work, then stick your flat head in between the sides of the arm attached to the teeth and pry outwards, allowing the arm to free up enough to allow movement.
This should drop your tire down and avoid the expense of buying another winch after cutting yours. 
Good luck!

Where is the spare tire located on a 1995 ford aerostar?


Section 00-02: Lifting, Jacking and Spare Tire Stowage 1995 Aerostar, Ranger, Explorer Workshop Manual
TIRE STOWAGE Tire, Spare, Removal, Aerostar If the Aerostar is a standard length vehicle the spare tire is mounted inside to a carrier at the left rear quarter panel. To remove the spare tire, remove the wing nut and plate. A flat tire can be temporarily stowed in the same location.



If the Aerostar is the bus with a standard length body or extended length (all models), the temporary spare tire is stowed at the rear of the vehicle under the body. The Aerostar standard length E-4WD bus spare tire is mounted on the floor.
  1. Insert lug nut wrench into the actuator hole and turn counterclockwise until the cable extends to allow the spare tire to be pulled rearward from under the vehicle.
  1. Slide spare tire to the rear and remove the retainer from the wheel.
  1. To stow cable/retainer with spare tire removed, insert cable fitting into carrier rear wall slot, place wheel retainer against the carrier, and turn lug nut wrench clockwise until slack is removed.
please rate, thanks

Spare tire


It is either under the car at the rear on the outside, or in a well under the rear Deck on the inside. If there is a well, you should be able to see its shape on the outside when you look under the rear.

No spare tire


It should be located underneath the rear end of the vehicle. If it's not there, someone removed it. The owners manual will give you detailed instructions on how to remove your spare. Your local dealership can help you find one if yours is missing.

Where is the spare tire located at in 2008 Dodge Caravan SXT?


It is under the center of the van. There is a place to crank it down on the floor between the 2 front seat, between the radio console and the center storage console. It should have a plastic cap on it. Use the jack-crank handle to lower it.

Where is the spare tire


It depends if you have stow and go seating, Look under the vehicle up by the front bench seats (middle of vehicle). Usually its at the very rear of the vehicle underneath. You will need the Tire wrench(or 19mm socket with wrench) to lower it into place via the winch adapter(Located in the floor, covered by an acces door or carpet cut out).

Where is spare tire located, i can't find it any where on my 2008 toyato sienna.


Underneath, right side, towards middle. You get it down by putting middle pass. side seat all the way back, pass. seat all the way forward. Pull up the mat, undo the bolt, the spare tire drops. There's a little piece of metal holding the spare tire: take that out and put the tire on.

It's a low tire pressure warning light. Make sure the tires are properly inflated.
