How To Get A Spare Tire Key

Ok, so after doing some research I found out I'm not the only one who doesn't have a spare tire key. Not all is lost though, I found out how to get one...

The spare tire key is made by a company called McGard and their number is 1-800-444-5847. I spoke to a lady by the name of Nancy and she said there are two ways to get one. First way, take a pic of the design down the tube where the crank rod goes, then email it to cs3@mcgard.com. Second way, they have a list of all the Ford dealerships that have a master set of all the keys. For me the closest place is roughly 50 miles away, so I opted for the pic. Cost for the key is $22.49 + shipping. Hope this helps, I read all kinds of stories where guys where ruining their stuff with sockets. Which for me, wasn't an option...

I went to the dealership and used their master kit to determine what code mine was and ordered that from McGard.

Yea I would have done that but not every dealership has the master keys. That's why I called McGard. They looked up the dealerships off my zip code and found out the closest one was 50 miles away.

Here is what I sent to Nancy. She called me back and said the pic worked. I called back and gave my CC info. Should be there within 2 to 5 business days...
