Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
The spare tire swing bar latch on my 2001 Kia Sportage that attaches to the rear door will not close and stay engaged.
What it is! some how your spare tire Carriage is out of alignment or bend or hanging on the lock mechanism You will need three hands one to lift the carriage and then pull the wire to open the latch ,that should take care of it. while you are at it tighten the bolts that hold the carriage.
