Ford's spares are held in place with a cable that's loosened by inserting the jack handle into the cable crank. it's located below the door sill of the rear door. Look for a hole that the jack handle can be inserted and turn counterclockwise. The tire should lower down for you.

The owner manual will tell you as well as the info with the jack.
Basically, you use the jack handle to rotate the cable winder counterclockwise to unwind the cable. This will lower the spare to the ground.

Sometimes the cable & winder get corroded and it won't lower. May need to pull down on the spare while unwinding.

How do I remove the spare tire from a 2001 ford windstar?


Should be a gear shaft that you turn from inside with the jack handle to lower the spare to the ground.
Check your owners manual for details.

It means one or more of your tires have low air pressure!
Check and adjust pressure.
Some cars (like mine) have the spare tire connected to the system also, so check all five.

Where is the spare on a 95 ford windstar


it should be right behind your rear bumper up under your van. The way it is removed is to take your tire iron extension bars that should have come with your vehicle and assemble them. then you should see a hole near your license plate tag or somewhere on your bumper to stick the rod in ( sometimes the hole has a lock that your ignition key should unlock) then you turn the crank handle and lower down your tire.

A LOUD hum from the right front while driving a 2001 Windstar. I assume it to b the wheel bearing. Is their another possible reason for this noise?


Could be road noise from a shifted belt in the tire. could be a drive axle going out. those wheel bearings dont hum 99% of the time when they go bad,generally they have a low grinding sound,espesially when you turn,and your teering gets a bit loose and sloppy.
also check to make sure that you dont have a broken strut that may be touching the tire..try putting on your spare and see if that fixex it,if so its a shifted belt in that tire.

I have a flat, how do I get the spare tire down?


in the boot/trunk at the rear of the boot area under the carpet will be a bolt head, usually a 17 mm , which is connected to a hook that hold the spare wheel carrier up.
unwind this bolt and the carrier will begin to lower. once you have unwound it a bit, look underneath the vehicle and the wheel will be lower, you can usually lift the rack up and unhook the bolt to lower the rack to slide the spare out. do the reverse when replacing the wheel

Rear seats for 98 Windstar


aerostar and early 95 windstar as well as 99 & up dont fit but can be modified to fit. your best bet is go to a junk yard because the rear seats are a dime a dozen. all the upper parts are the same but the lower steel parts are slightly different
