Hello, I apologise if this is the wrong forum but I could not find anything that matches.  I took my 2002 3.0 V6 Shogun Sport Animal into the tyre place today to have a repair of a puncture done.As I was not keen on having the repaired one on the front of the car I asked the chap to take the spare out from under the car and swap it for the repaired one on the front.When he unwound the spare chain he did it all the way and the chain dropped to the floor. He had no idea as to how to return it to where ever it should be and my days of crawling around on the ground and under cars has long gone.What I need is some information as to how to return the chain to where it should be and replace the spare wheel to its designated point as I would be getting my son to crawl about while I direct from above.I really would appreciate any advice you may be able to give me.
Best regards, Alan

Found this:

"It is a fiddly job to do!
The winder (aka winch) needs to be removed from the upper frame (chassis), requires patience and dexterity to undo the bolts holding it in place. Car ramps or a hoist make it easier.
Once winder is removed then cover must come off so chain can be wound back on.
Caution it can can on both ways but only one way is correct , do it wrong and the chain slips on the pulley under load and you have to remove it again.
End of chain attaches to hook so once end of chain is attached then bend it over. I also put an M6x30 bolt and nut through a chainlink near the hook to prevented the chain from being wound off as the hook retention is weak.
Whist it is apart it is worthwhile doing some shimming and lubrication as per my mod post, if you are mechanically handy, as this improves the operation of the winder."
