Lowering Spare Tire

Hey all,

New to the forum and tried searching about this, but nothing came up. Pretty basic question and feel ignorant about asking. I know to lower the spare tire you need to put in the T-shaped portion of the jack tool above the license plate, but how can you see where that T-shaped portion is supposed to fit in? I was messing around with it for about 30 minutes and cannot find it. Does anyone have pictures of what I am looking for? Thanks in advance and I am looking forward to learning more from the forum.

u needa get a flashlight.. look inside n you'll see it. its pretty much just straight ahead. nissan Effed up on this design. they needa have atleast a tube to guide it in. its just way to hard to feel for it.

Conveniently off the 10 and 210 in San Dimas... no not really

Make sure the t-part is all the way in before turning it; I managed to bend one of the sides. The metal is too thin to bend back w/o breaking it.
