While Driving At Less Than 10 Miles Per Hour On A Country Road The Spare Tire Support Cable On My 1998 ford f-150 Failed, Causing The Tire To Fall Beneath The Truck, Bounce, And Strike The Undercarriage. The Unit Had Not Shown Prior Signs Of Wear When The Spare Tire Was Last Serviced About 16 Months Ago. The Unit Has Been Cycled Probably Five Times During The Life Of The Vehicle. There Were No Warning Signs Of “thumping” Which Would Indicate A Loose Fitting Of Tire In The Spare Well. While No One Was Injured Due To The Low Speed And Location, A Release On A Highway Would Likely Have Resulted In An Accident And Possible Serious Injury. I Plan To Order A Replacement Part And Will Retain The Damaged Unit For Inspection.*ak
