If the tire does not lower with the jack parts from the access door then you will have to put the jack up under the presseurerelease in the middle of the tire till it releases.

SOURCE: hoist to lower spare tire does not work.

Same thing happened to me on my 2002 trailblazer. The last few wraps of the cable was corroded to the point that it wouldn't unwind with the tool supplied. First thing to do is cut the crimped end of the cable off with a grinder or cut off wheel but don't forget to support the spare. This will get the spare out of your way then simply take out the 3 mounting bolts for the cable hoist. At this point you could buy a new cable hoist from the dealer and install it yourself or you might be able to do what I did. I managed to pull and remove about a foot of the rusted cable, slide the rectangular metal piece, that actually holds the spare at the center of the wheel, back on the cable and attach a 1/4" cable clamp to the end of the cable which of course must be in good condition. There should still be enough cable to re-attach your spare to it and hoist it back up. Don't forget to lube things up so it won't happen again. Good luck. (buying a new one sounds better, doesn't it?)

SOURCE: spare tire tools

From the owner's manual for that model, see link below also, page 299 of the PDF has a nice picture.

Spare Tire Removal
Fit the jack handle extension over the drive nut. Use the
Lug Wrench to rotate the nut counter clockwise until the
spare is on the ground with enough slack in the cable to
allow to pull the tire out from under the vehicle.
CAUTION!
The winch mechanism is designed for use with the
jack extension tube only. Use of an air wrench or
other power tools is not recommended and can
damage the winch.
When the spare is clear, tilt the retainer at the end of the
cable and pull it through the center of the wheel.

The spare tire assembly lowers using the crank for the scissor jack. If the mechanism has jammed, use penetrating oil on the mechanism.

How to get down the spare tire underneath the 92 ford explorer xlt


Using the jack handle from the engine compartment. There will be a spot for it to fit into and then crank the spare down. To store the spare again, crank in the opposite direction. There is a cable that is wound on a spindle by the jack handle. This lowers and raises the spare.

Good luck, Jim

Where do I store the spare tire on a 1998 Ford Explorer? In the cargo area or does it go underneath? Thanks.


The spare tire is stored under the vehicle. There's a hole just above the license plate you insert the extended end of the jack handle into to lower and raise the spare tire. The jack and handle are stowed in the drivers side rear (just inside the rear hatch).
You can go to this FREE Ford website to view or download the users manual for this vehicle for a diagram if needed.

I need to take down the spare tire


along with the jack and the tire iron, there should be another metal rod that will have sort of a square, hex, or star shape on one end (this may also be part of the tire iron). with the trunk open, look along the top edge of the bumper and you should see a hole that you insert the rod into and then crank it to lower the tire out from under the car

How to take the spare tire off


I beleive these spares come down like the trucks do. There will be a crank handle under the hood and it will look like a long rod. There is a hole in the tailgate door sill. You put the rod into this hole and then crank and the tire lowers from the bottom of your Explorer.
