Spare Tire Security Key Help???

When they say you need a "key" for the spare tire they mean a round "key" like they have for lug but locks. Check your glovebox ect. Otherwise google how to remove ford spare tire lock. Edit, found it, use a cheap/old 9/16 socket and pound it on to the "Lock" and drop the tire down with a ratchet and a few extensions. Then get under the truck and pop the "Lock" off with a flat blade screwdriver. Check out this link, he used a nut extractor but I just hammered on a cheap 9/16 socket. He shows it on an 03 f250 but I know from experience it works with ours.
The 5 digit code is only for the door. And if you do a search on here you can find directions for finding the code on some module behind the dash.

That my Dealer in the states say to me

(There should be a card in the glove box with a 5 digit Mcgard key code on
it. Mcgard made these for Ford. With that code I can get a replacement
key,
without it you will have to drill it out or cut it off and replace it. See
if the code card is still in the glove box and let me know)

You can have the dealer remove your key completely.. I lost mine and the dealers have a tool to remove it. Then you just don't have a lock but do you really need it !

You don't need an unusual tool to remove the key, you just have to get to it. It's really easy to take it out once you get to it. For me, the easiest way was to unbolt the bed and lift the back of it up 6" or so. It was 8 Towx head bolts on my long box, it's probably 6 on a short box. After lifting the bed up a little I had clear access to the tire mechanism. I took the key thing out, and I just keep an 18" 3/8" socket extension in the truck if I ever need the spare.

The other nice thing about doing this is that now I can take the spare up and down with a drill or impact wrench. Much faster.

You might want to put a chain or cable around your spare to keep it from wandering off though...
