    1996 Amethyst: tool to lower spare wheel



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Bit of a specific one (and I have also asked on an Autosleeper forum). We've been trying to work out how to access the spare wheel on our 1996 Amethyst, which is mounted under the near-side sill. There's an access hole and what appears to be a bolt-head, but try as we might we can't get the supplied Transit tool to engage or lower the wheel. We've tried various sockets from 13mm to 19mm with no luck. Any advice gratefully received. Thanks all.

    I had a similar issue when I had a flat on my new MH, luckily it was on my drive , seemed that the special tool I needed was never issued with the MH, had to source one from the MH supplier. It is a, I believe a 5 sided headed socket
    A collision is what happens when two motorists go after the same pedestrian.

    My moho is on a later transit but the tool for the spare wheel winch is a socket with a flat end like a large screwdriver blade. This goes on the end of a long square drive handle which gives you access through the hole behind the rear wheel.

    I found mine in the box that the Jack was in inside the wheel brace socket but nothing like the pic above
