To lower the spare wheel:
1. Fold down the lower section of the tailgate.
2. Fold up the rear section of the floor in the cargo compartment.
3. Connect the two sections of the jack's crank.
4. Insert the hooked end of the crank in the spare wheel retaining attachment.
5. Lower the spare wheel under the vehicle by turning the crank counterclockwise until it is not possible to turn it further.
6. Pivot the toggle at the end of the cable 90 degrees to release it from the spare wheel

CAUTION
When the spare wheel is mounted on the vehicle, the retaining cable could damage the underside of the vehicle if it is not retracted.

7. Crank up the cable again by turning the crank clockwise.
8. Place the wheel with the flat tire in the vehicle's cargo compartment.

NOTE
The space under the vehicle is designed to hold the special spare wheel only. Other fullsize wheels will not fit in this compartment.
