I CANT GET MY SPARE TIRE OFF!! I need some help. . .

So I have an 87 S10. I popped the a tire yesterday and I cant seem to figure out how the spare comes off. Sounds dumb, I know. The reason I cant figure it out is because it WONT stop raining here so I dont want to lay in the rain trying to figure it out.

If anyone knows how that mechanism back there works, I would really appreciate the help!

Thanks so much.

There is a little bolt in the middle of the bracket, but its stripped to SH*T. Then I tried to bent the bracket, but thats some crazy strong steel!

Dammit, I may have to grind it off.

odd they must not have the same deal as the second gen's... do you not have a hole in the back of the bed between the tailgate and bumper.. if you do you put your tire tool in it and spin it.... should lower the tire via a cable....
