Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The spare tire carrier can get stuck. When you have the spare tire rod assembled you need to give it a nice crack counter clock wise to get it to release. Some time the pressure of the carrier holding the tire can make it get stuck and you need to just crack it to get it to free up.

Give that a try and let me know how you make out..

This did not work. I had to call a mechanic to get the tire freed.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
