Removing the spare tire on a Dodge Caravan requires the driver to use the scissor jack to jack the vehicle up and then crawl under the car to remove the tire from its place underneath the driver and passenger seats. Removing the tire requires spinning the metallic nut.
Removing the spare tire in this manner is very dangerous. If the scissor jack or car are destabilized while the driver is underneath the car, the car may collapse on the driver. This danger is higher because the tire location requires the driver to crawl nearly halfway under the car before he or she can begin removing the tire from its hanger.
