Use penetrating oil called PB Blast. Spray liberally and wait twenty minutes. If you are referring to the tire not dropping when you turn the winch counter clockwise then you may need to do the following. This assumes that the cable has become caught inside the winch. Turn the winch as far as you can clockwise. This would normally raise the tire. In this case it should wrap the cable in the correct position. Get someone to help by pulling on the tire as you begin to loosen it counter clockwise. two or thre turns should be more than enough to get it to drop several inches. Once it is loose, unwind it all the way out to straighten the cable. Then re-wind with the tire on for tension. This should straighten it out.
If the tire is mounted under the bed, then it is held up by a winch. Using the factory jack handle , stick the shaft through a hole under the tailgate to engage the winch and crank to lower.
Remove the four 13mm bolts from the winch bracket and the whole assembly will come down.
life the carpet in the truck in the back. you should have a bolt head underneath that you turn with a socket and the spare will drop down.
If equipped with spare tire lock, attach key to crank. Open rear cargo doors. If a cover plate covers the hold for the spare tire winch, remove the cover plate. Insert crank into hole until it engages the winch, then turn counterclockwise. If it won't turn: The winch is broken (usually caused by corrosion.) Cut the cable holding the spare tire up to get the tire out of the way, then install a new spare tire winch.
The spare tire is under the center of the van. The winch access is between the front seats.
the lowering winch is operated by turning the nut accessable fromjust inside the liftgate.
The tool kit includes a several section crank and a male adapter. Remove access cover on rear bumper to locate winch mechanism. As the crank is rotated, the spare will decend to the ground.
i HAD THE SAME PROBLEM ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WITH A BLOW-OUT.I HAD TO TAKE A LONG EXTENSION WITH A SOCKET AND GO BETWEEN THE HOLES IN MY SPARE RIM AND REMOVE THE ENTIRE WINCH ASSEMBLY TO GET THE TIRE OUT FROM UNDER THE TRUCK.IT TURNS OUT THE INSIDE OF THE WINCH ASSEMBLY GOT RUSTY AND WAS KEEPING IT FROM RELEASING THE TIRE FROM THE WINCH.IT IS A PAIN TO GET OFF,I ENDED UP BEATING THE WINCH ASSEMBLY FROM THE BACK SIDE OF MY SPARE RIM WITH A 2 LB SLEDGE TO GET IT TO RELEASE,AND HAD TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE WINCH.GOOD LUCK.HOPE THIS HELPS.ON A GOOD NOTE,THERE IS ONLY 1 BOLT HOLDING THE ENTIRE ASSEMBLE TO THE TRUCK BEHIND THE SPARE TIRE,AND IS FAIRLY EASY TO REMOVE WITH A SOCKET AND LONG EXTENSION.
you have to buy a mounting plate that is attached to the radiator bracket then attach the winch
It is under the van, between the front seats. The access for the winch is just infront of the floor console.
Unscrew the cable winch See if your local library has a professional shop manual to look at for free... dave
If the question is "How can I remove the spare tire from under the truck bed of my Ford Ranger?" , on my Ranger if you lower the tail gate you will see a hole in the middle of the bed. Insert the tire crank handle from the tire jack into the hole and crank away and the tire will unwind from a winch.
