The only trick I know is to coat the bolts with coppergrease - and check yearly.
They get the worst of the road spray, then sieze.
Sometimes bolt croppers are the only way - then replace the mountings.
Try penetrating oil for several days ( I presume you're home now), and apply a self-grip wrench while using a good socket set on the other. If it snaps - job done, get a replacement.
Paint your spare steel rim with a rustproofing sealant - or it will soon rust around the tyre - causing a flat as well.
I hope this solves your problems - now and in the future. If it does, Please rate as Fixya, Thank you.

if the vehicles spare is located under the rear cargo area then there may be a hole located in the rear bumper next to the license plate. if the vehicle is equipped like that then there should be a few straight bars that attach together to form a long bar. this bar is then inserted into this hole and mated with a joint witch is connected to a pully system that raises and lowers the tire. if this didnt make any sense or if it is totally wrong then you could consult the owners manual. all of the necessary procedures are in that book.

SOURCE: How do I remove the spare tire
lift open the tailgate..lift the panel that is in the back there is a nob that is covered by some fabric..use the jack that comes with the truck it has a diagram underneath the panel of how to lower the tire and release it. i had the same problem the first time i got a flat as well. after you figure it out it is very easy and simply replace the bad tire with the new.
