Lamest question ive ever asked!!!!

How do I get my spare tire off? I cant get it off, it looks to me as i need a special tool that goes on the end of my jack wrench. Is this true? I dont have any manuals for it and im guessing this spacial adapter is either hidden or lost.

Thanks for the help/suggestions/thoughts/home made tool ideas.

All of those tools should be under the hood on top of the fan shroud

I think.... again think, you use the tool that is mounted under your hood and stick it through the opening which should be right by your rear license plate in your bumper......

Ive tried all that. The part that the under the engine tool slides into looks almost like a star.

There is a "key" similiar to something you would find for lug nuts. It should be in a bag in your glove box. Its about 3 inches long, silver and fits on the end of the tool that goes in the hole.

Yep the first time taking it down is a pain. Maybe even the second time if you forget about that stupid key.
