    Default Spare wheel lowering

    Good Day all.

    I was wondering, but never got the chance to ask about how one lowers the spare wheel under the load bin?
    Where do you insert the handle at the rear of the vehicle?
    OR is it from underneath the vehicle?
    Pics will be highly appreciated

    It highly depends on the vehicle. The Ford Everest and Chev Trailblazer have a slot in the bed of the boot where you insert the "slinger" to lower the spare wheel. Dunno about the modern Toyota Hiluxes, but the ones from the 90's had a slot at the back just above or below the rear number plate.

    Just above the number plate usually. Depending on the model its either a hole that you can see the slot mechanism above the spare or it's a black plastic tube (with a black clip on dust cover) that guides the bars onto the mechanism.

    The owners manual should have a good explanation with pictures.

    To the left of the number plate there should be a black plastic cap. Behind it there's a lock (use your ignition key). Once the lock is out, your jack handle slides down a tube (no naughty pun intended) to lower the wheel.
