Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
How to release the spare
I will tell you how to remove the tire but it is a difficult task, best done at a tire repair shop where they have a lift so they are not working on their back. There is a spring-loaded, wire actuated metal clip that holds the
spare from dropping.
It actually prevents the mushroomed end of the plastic sleeve on the
tire cable from passing. You have to loosen the tire, then reach in
with your hand and squeeze the clip with one hand, and angle the
plastic sleeve with the other to release the tire. After I got mine
down, I took the wire piece out. I think the wire piece was supposed
to be some kind of release, but it doesn't work very well.
