The spare tire on my QX56 will not release

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.
