I need a photo of Thunderbolt spare tire crank

Hi everyone,

I have a '14 XLR Thunderbolt with the usual hole in the right rear portion on the outside of the garage presumably for the spare tire crank. Might someone display a photo of said crank? I don't think I have one but I don't know what I'm looking for.

Thanks Homebrew...I most definitely don't have that tool. I'll have to purchase one from somewhere. Now I know what it looks like. Many thanks!

Could you tell me where it's kept?

I agree with Ford Idaho. I wouldn't expect that 3/4" hex socket crank to fit a spare tire winch or are you talking about something else when you say "the spare tire crank"?

My Thunderbolt doesn't have that hex socket either. The spare tire crank has a tube with a slot on it. It goes over the end of the shaft, which has a roll pin through it so it locks on to crank. Make sure you have a flashlight with you because you can't see inside the bodywork and the stupid crank only fits 2 ways. And I think it was under the bed too. Long weekend of waxing a 42 footer so if I get time I'll post a pic.

Here are pictures showing my 300x12 XLR spare tire lowering connection point with and without tool connected. This XLR has6 point leveling so no need for hand cranking . 😱
