I have had a 1995 Mercury Village for ten years. Recently I read about the spare tire cable hoist and plate rusting and the spare wheel falling off onto the street. I real road hazard. Mine is very rusted...


Hi.

Unfortunately Ford/Mercury did not issue any recall about the spare tire cable. Here all recalls concerning your van model: 1996 Mercury Villager Recalls.

A good solution would be replacing the spare tire nut and cable. A solution is getting an aftermarket replacement like the one below. That should be safe enough to allow you putting the spare cable back in place under the van without safety concerns. Click on the picture below to open the page.

Or click here.

Note: If the problem is not the spare tire nut and cable but the rod attached to the chassis you will need to carry a welding job to fix a new rod to the chassis. In that case the repair must be done at the garage. If the problem is nut and cable I suggest buying the part shown above or an equivalent.

Regards.

I have a 2000 ford explore and don't know how to get the spare tire out/ down.Where is the release located?


There are 2 rods located under the carpet behind the passenger rear seat and a jack crank handle located inside the hatch on the drivers side near the tailgate. Open the rear door. At the top of the bumper (normally covered by the rear door) is a small hole. Insert the assembly into the hole until you have it engaged with the slot inside. Crank counter clockwise until your spare is on the ground. Once on the ground, remove the spare tire retainer, pulll the tire out and that should be it.

  • Remove the retainer from the center of the wheel by turning it sideways and pushing it through the center of the tire.

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

Brakes holding after i stop


If your unscrewing the "little nut" to release it and letting out some brake fluid, you have a master cylinder problem. This can be replaced at a brake shop.

Directions to follow


Open the tailgate. Under the carpet close to the tailgate lock is a bolt head. Use your wheel brace to rotate this nut counter clockwise several turns. This will release and lower your spare. Keep turning the nut until you can unhook the carrier and drop the spare down. Watch out though, if you unwind the bolt too far, the carrier will drop off the threads and can land on your feet (ouch!!).
