    The spare is held in with a crank down cable. Open the rear hatch and look for a small cut out in the carpet right at the back. There may be a plastic circular insert in the carpet. Pull that up, and under it there is a nut, that is the same size as the lug nuts on the wheels. Use the lug wrench to turn the nut to lower the tire.

    When you get the tire to the ground, and have some slack in the cable, you can turn the part that is holding the wheel and remove the tire!

    surely, in '89 3.0 liter V-6's, the oil burning concern became led to by valve classes "dropping" interior the pinnacle, allowing oil to be sucked by way of the valve handbook seals. Chrysler (and maximum stable device shops) have particular procedures which will pull the classes returned into place, then decrease a small groove interior the handbook the place a snap ring would properly be put in to hold the handbook in place. i've got performed lots of them, and the job would properly be refrained from removing the cylinder head(s). And particular, it became an extremely ordinary concern. different than that, the three.0 liters have been fairly difficult engines. as some distance because of the fact the paint peeling, it became in simple terms poor paint prep from the production facility, like GM had interior the mid eighty's with blue and silver paint. in case you have been the unique proprietor of the motor vehicle, Chrysler might often pay for portion of repainting the motor vehicle. desire this solutions your questions!
