Its possible something has hit the tire and moved the winch and its no longer aligned or there is a rock or something stuck the hole where the rod goes. Try a long 3/8 extension that has a smaller square. If all attempts fail to get the rods to lock in and the winch to turn. You will need to use a grinder to cut the winch hanger so the tire can fall and the winch removed and replaced.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
