To get the tire down you just need to assemble the jack handle extensions through a hole above the license plate, it is visible with the tailgate closed. It can be a bit of a pain to get the extension to engage with the little winch that holds up the tire, but it will go on, once you get the extension on just put the tire wrench on the extensions(the wrench has square opening in it for this) and just wind the tire down till you have enough slack to take out the cable that runs through the hole in the center of the rim.
Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: How to lower spare tire
Find a plastic cover located in the carpet at the back right corner. Lift the cover to locate a nut the size of a lugnut of your tires. Using the van's lugnut wrench, turn nut counter-clockwise to lower the spare tire. Have fun and don't pinch yourself while removing the tire.
