I got his post from Wiki Answers:

The winch is probably broken and will need to be replaced. You can use a cut-off tool or an hand held angle grinder to cut the cable holding the tire up, then you will have access to the tire and can replace the winch.

Wear safety glasses when operating any cutting or grinding equipment.

Common problem for these trucks is that the tire is pressing up against the tube that you slide in the handle thru. It wont connect to the gearing tool to allow you do drop the tire down. The only way I found to get around this was to rip out the tube from underneath. Then try the handle again.
Happened in all 4 of my trucks, let some air out of the tire, it'll relieve the pressure on the tube so the gears mesh.

2007 cad SRX right rear has flat tire 255 60R17 can I use the spare tire? Is it a full size spare tire?


If the vehicle came with a spare tire then yes you can use it. As to whether or not it is a full size spare tire I wouldn't be able to answer that, as on some models a full sized spare is an option and I have no way of knowing if that option was purchased or not.

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

I can't get the spare tire out of the rack? 2004 yukon


  • Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the spare tire to the ground. Continue to rotate the shaft until the spare tire can be pulled out from under the vehicle and removed. If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower.
  • If the secondary latch is engaged and the cable end is visible, perform the following procedure: 3.1. Tighten the cable by rotating the hoist shaft clockwise until you hear 2 clicks or feel it skip twice. You cannot overtighten the cable. 3.2. Loosen the cable by rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns. 3.3. If the spare tire can be lowered, repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if the spare tire can be removed. 3.4. If the spare tire cannot be lowered, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable is exposed. 3.5. Raise and support the vehicle. 3.6. Place a transmission jack, or equivalent, under the spare tire. 3.7. Position the center of the transmission jack under the secondary latch release button at the center of the spare tire. Arrange the arms of the transmission jack so they will support the tire after it has been released. 3.8. Raise the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is firmly held in place, releasing the secondary latch. 3.9. Lower the tire. If the spare tire is hanging by the cable, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until the tire is low enough to remove.

    How does one remove warning for low tire pressure on 2007 Lexus RX400h (Metal caps still in pocket, so that may be issue)


    Are all tires at correct pressure? Some of the cars also use one in the spare tire. if the spare has a tire valve like the other 4 tires it has a sensor.

    Your nissan also has a tire monitor on your spare tire if your spare has low pressure and the other 4 tires have correct pressure the light will stay on . after you ajust the spare also the light should go away.
