Spare Tire Assembly

Hi,

I got a flat and was able to remove the spare tire easily. The guy who
repaired the flat said that he was unable to store the spare back where it
belonged. The assembly will only lower about 5 inches and then seems to get
stuck and won't lower further.

Can you please tell me what part I need to order? My mechanic says he can
install a new one, but he can't order the part.

It's a 1997 Ford Explorer with 4 WD.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Abby

Re: Spare Tire Assembly

Try to pull the assembly down while someone turns the crank. It might
be binding up and pulling it down with some force might help.

Is this a case for WD-40?

Sounds like someone cranked it up without the spare on there. I agree with
the pulling with force--maybe lots of it.
