Re: Spare tire in factory location
The bolt that secures the factory Ford "security" plate that must be removed, is accessible when the driver side rear door is opened. You can use the "hubcap pry-bar end" of the factory Ford lug wrench, or the jack crank handle to then lower the spare. If you have to improvise, you'll need something like a large screwdriver with a shank at least 20" or so long. The internal reciever for the spare tire carrier mechanism is slotted.
I hope this helps.
