Just checked the spare tire air pressure on my '12 Escape. Is there a video, or a decent instruction on how to lower the tire? I noticed there are some bolts that are rusted so I will spray those down to loosen them. Thanks!
Just checked it. The rear seats look like they are 60/40. There are 2 bolts. There is a longer bolt in front of a shorter bolt. Looking at the spare there is a bolt in the center with a spring. That spring is heavily rusted. I have a feeling I am going to have to use a really good spray to loosen it. Thanks for your help!
Decided to get off my behind and mess with the spare. Seems I made a mountain out of a molehill. It is similar to what I had a '90 and '94 Dodge Grand Caravan, only more up-to-date. The spring and bolt were not really that bad. I went ahead and sprayed some PB Buster. I did that last night. When I got the tire by itself I took a metal brush and cleaned all what was left behind. I sprayed the cable with a chain and cable spray. Sprayed the bolt and lug nut and wiped it. Lined everything and put it back together. For being a 3 year old vehicle there wasn't much dirt and mud back there. If I go on a trip, and there is quite a bit stored in the back I will take the jack before I leave. Thanks for the tip on the spring and bolt!
