I'm go to the track maybe twice a month. Maybe more now that the weather is improving. Almost always, I'll take the jack, lug wrench and spare tire out. Taking these out and putting them back in is a pain in the butt. Mostly putting them back in. Standing straight up, bending at the waist, and reaching into the trunk is not easy on my aging lower back. Here's my summary of putting these things back in. 1. Open trunk. 2. Lift and hold the carpet thing up and out of the way. Your left hand will be holding this carpet for the rest of this procedure. You may hold the carpet with your elbow to have partial use of your left hand. 3. Hook the post onto the center thing. 4. With one hand, place the jack in the center making sure the post goes through the washer looking thing. This is easier to do if you have had practice unhooking a girl's bra with one hand. 5. Reposition the jack and wiggle the post to get it to stand straight up. 6. Place the tire iron in the slots provided in the sound deadener thing. 7. Grab the spare tire by the center and lower it into the spare tire storage area. 8. Cuss out loud from the post scraping against the back of your hand. 9. Repeat step 5. 10. Install the spring onto the post. 11. Install the retainer washer thing onto the post. 12 Install the wingnut onto the post and spin it for the next 15 minutes till it bottoms out. 13. Wiggle the tire to make sure it is tight and won't rattle. 14. Spin the wingnut down for another 5 minutes. 15. Repeat steps 13 and 14 as needed. 16. Lower the trunk carpet. 17. Shut the trunk. Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit. But when you take the spare tire, jack and lug wrench out every Sunday afternoon and have to put it back in every Sunday night, it becomes a pain in the back. Has anyone come up with an easier way? Maybe some sort of quick release thing? Or some other method of mounting or fixing the stuff in the trunk? Just leaving them out is an option but I'm hoping someone has thought of another solution.
