Spare tire issue

Ok... try not to poke fun in the case that I am completely oblivious... but I need to add air to my spare tire (damn message keeps popping up) but I can't get the spare down. Now I've worked on cars for years... I know how to get these spares down from under the vehicle, and I know it says to remove the false floor in the cargo area, insert the lug wrench in to the hole... but THERES NO HOLE... Do I just need to cut out the spot where the hole should be? I'll add a picture soon.

Re: Spare tire issue

from picture you posted it seems you did not remove the round black "plug" that closes the hole.

Re: Spare tire issue

That's what I was thinking too... but it's not a plug. Its seamless.

Re: Spare tire issue

That round black thing is a plug. I had to get a knife in there to get it out.

Re: Spare tire issue

Is this something that should be refitted or does it get left off.

Re: Spare tire issue

Hi, you can just leave the hole open, if you have the plug, use it.

Enjoy your Jeep.
