I have had to go underneathe the car and use a pair of vise grips or pliers to turn a crank that is to the rear drivers side of the tire. that is about the only way to do it unless you have the crank that hole is for the crank to go thru. it veers to the left a little is why it looks like it doesn't go anywhere.
