WTB: Ford spare tire hoist parts

Did you ďdeleteĒ your Ford under-van spare tire and the related hoist mechanism, and have the parts stashed in a box somewhere? I just noticed that my new 2002 E250 Traverse is missing the cable and likely a few other parts for the spare tire hoist setup. Iím looking for pretty much the full setup, I guess (minus the tire/wheel itself and the twisty knob thing inside the rear doors). Right now I canít get the spare down so Iím not too keen to drive it any distance until I get this fixed.

Let me know how much you want for it, shipped to 19006. Thanks!

Sure, I can go source from a junkyard, but itís cold outside and Iím lazy ;-)

If Rob doesn't find you one it's just 4 bolts holding it on and should be easy to find at any salvage yard. You'll have to get creative with a sawzall and get to the cable to cut yours down. I'm guessing it's seized from rust. I've seen this a couple times.

Thanks guys!

Itís not seized - the cable that connects to the fixture by the bumper is totally missing. So yes, I assume Iíll have to cut down the current setup to get the wheel down. If the weather is ok to tomorrow Iím going to give that a shot.

I have yet to "delete" it off my 1996 but have already installed a rear tire rack, so none of it is in use.. I can remove and ship it to ya if you haven't found a solution yet!

I'm not sure I can picture how a wheel would be held under your van if you didn't have nearly all of the mechanism.

The cable doesn't go to the bumper. You remove the plate with the little plastic top screw and stick a long 3/8" square drive socket extension into the hole from the back bumper. Then you crank it down with whatever handle or ratchet you want. I carry one just for this reason.

Here's the Ford part:

If nothing pans out here try FleaBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2003-FORD-E250-ECONOLINE-VAN-8-Lug-Spare-Tire-Wheel-Hoist-Winch/123572890961?hash=item1cc584ad51:g:w9EAAOSwnLtcKoB z:rk:15f:0

You can also contact these guys: https://www.ebay.com/usr/wine-1wholesale I've bought a few of these from them, new take-offs they have laying around and never listed on FleaBay.

BTW when you re-install your new winch extend the cable fully, coat it with Fluid Film as its retracted--that should keep the rust away inside the winch case.

HTH

Yeah, I had it wrong. My other van has the tire outside on the rear door so I wasnít very familiar with the mechanism and how it works at first. After working on it for an hour or so yesterday, I finally got the wheel down. But the hoist mech has seen better days. I soaked it with PB Blaster overnight and will see if itís working better this morning. I do have a line on a new one from a forum member.

I canít imagine doing that whole process though on the side of the road and in the dark and rain (as Murphyís Law would require) if I got a flat. For those who havenít touched their spare in years, Iíd suggest spending some time lowering it, lubricating the mechanism, and airing the tire up BEFORE you need to!
