Hi there!

The only trick I know is to coat the bolts with coppergrease - and check yearly.

They get the worst of the road spray, then sieze.

Sometimes bolt croppers are the only way - then replace the mountings.

Try penetrating oil for several days ( I presume you're home now), and apply a self-grip wrench while using a good socket set on the other. If it snaps - job done, get a replacement.

Bad design.

Paint your spare steel rim with a rustproofing sealant - or it will soon rust around the tyre - causing a flat as well.

I hope this solves your problems - now and in the future. If it does, Please rate as Fixya, Thank you.

There is a hole in the bumper or when you let the tail gate down there should be a hole. there should be some rods with the factory jack to allow you to let the tire down

How do i change a tire on a 1988 ford f-150


Before doing anything make sure you have air in your spare..,A good Jack and spare tire removal kit....The kit should be under or behind the passenger seat..I don't like the factory Jack it comes with because sometimes you need a good strong block of wood to achieve the height you need to contact the vehicle..and sometimes they don't work correctly...Some spare tire release tools are under the hood..It is a long skinny rod ...You have to use rod or rod kit to stick through the rear bumper at the slot and turn the rod counterclockwise after you feel the rod connect with the release mechanism..,Lower the spare until it touches the ground then keep turning so you can have enough slack to remove cable from spare tire...Set parking brake while in park and use the lug nut removal tool to break loose the lug nuts before raising vehicle..They are removed counter clockwise..Don't take nuts off just break them loose...Block front wheels for safety with anything solid you can find if you are stranded..If you can't find anything rely on parking brake..It should be safe in park but safety first....Jack vehicle up..,remove all lug nuts put them in a safe clean place don't lose them..Remove flat tire..Install spare..Start each lug nut and tighten them all tight by hand..Snug each nut clockwise in a star pattern ..Get them good and tight but don't try to hurt yourself or break the stud...Lower vehicle,remove Jack..Snug each lug nut once again for safety..Put flat in truck bed for now rather than back in the spare storage area because it has to be repaired..Crank spare cable that held spare under truck clockwise until it stops.Remove tool..,Gather all tools used., remove blocks from front tires.,Head to a tire store...

My honda odyssey touring does not have a spare tire. We bought this as a brand new car. The first time i had a flat tire we checked everywhere in the car even with AAA service help and we were not able to...


2005 Honda Odyssey TOURING models originally came with Michelin PAX run-flats and eliminated the traditional dough-nut spare. If your van no longer has run-flats (look at the tire size) then your van has already been De-PAX'd...count your lucky stars because PAX tires run about 300 a tire plus!!! If you have been De-PAX'd then you will need a donut spare (T135/80D17) this goes into the spare tire space located behind the 3rd row of seats. this Site has everything you will need for the spare http://www.hondapartworld.com/1534_SPARE-SHJ

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

Spare tire removal 2003 gmc sierra how to release secondary latch? owners manual is no help. cable comes down spare comes down about 3 inchs thats all


You must unwind (counter clockwise) with the tire tools that come with the truck, sometimes the cable gets jammed on the spool it may take 2 people to get it loose,one must pull down on the spare while the other unwinds it. Try not to get under the tire as it is heavy.

I have a used 2004 Ford F250 and am in need of a spare tire key


Check this site for info- there are 16 different 'keys', so it would probably be best to follow instructions on how to use a 'bolt extractor' to drop the spare tire, and remove the 'key ' insert, so you can lower it w/ a 3/8 drive socket extension in the future, and lock it with a cable lock for security.

I have a 2004 Ford f250 and I don't have the spare tire key. Where can I get a new one? I've gone to Ford dealers and they told me that they can't get it. I can't get my spare tire down.


If you can gain access to the plastic tube where the spare tire rod slides through to lower the tire. I would remove the tube so you can get to the lock. I would just pop the lock out and leave it out.Good luck,I hope this helps.

Spare tire


Is the wheel the correct size? If so, then don't worry about it. It's just a spare. If it's completely wrong, then get the right one at a junkyard.
