Lightbulb Spare Tire Key

We all know is sucks to get a flat in BFE just to find out that you can't lower you spare to limp back home.

For those of you that DON'T have your spare tire key to lower your spare your in luck.

And those of you that don't know if you have it. LET GO OF THE MOUSE AND GO CHECK YOUR SPARE TOOLS UNDER THE HOOD OR BEHIND THE SEAT!!!

If you are with out, call these guys. They are the good for nothin guys that FORD hired to keep you $150+ spare under the truck safe under lock and NO KEY. They can give you a list of local Ford dealers that will have the master key set so you can get the code for the key that you need. $22.50 and a week later I have now seen the best looking on my truck for the first time

McGard 1-800-444-5647 Monday - Friday Eastern time.

THIS IS NOT A FORD PART. ORDER BY PHONE FROM McGard ONLY

Maybe a MOD can make this a sticky where it need to be, if not spread the word to all your fellow ORG members.

What trucks have the tools behind the seat?

Mine are under the hood on top of the fan casing.

All the crew cabs that I've seen its behind the drivers side back seat.

So do you have the key to lower the tire? The parts guy at Ford informed me the didn't get away for this until 2007 on most cars and trucks.

Mine doesn't need a "key", just the rod and wrench that are under the hood ontop of the fan casing.

Mine has a key in the glove box that goes on the end of the rod. Kind of like a special lug nut lock key deal.

Yeah the parts guys said some early years didn't need it.

Yep thats the one. The bag that has the rods and lug wrench has a pouch that doesn't seal shut. I'm guessing thats how they tend to get lost.

The bag with the key is the only thing in the glove box. The Wrench/ rods are under the hood and the bottle jack is supposed to be under my extended cab seat. Currently missing. And in the Crew Cabs they are behind the seat.

On my 2000, i didnt have a key, took it to dealer and a guy told me how to mod the lock to not need a key. Any ideas? Think you just had to take something off of the lock? Its been a while back now!

I saw a thread about this but couldn't find it. I think Maintain now Marty started it. Only help the dealer gave me was to break the lock and just put the tire in the bead Did that on my last couple trucks and have decided its nice to have bed space when needed.

I think you can just pull the part of the lock out that the key goes in, then the rod fits right inside.
