Scotty, my college classmate has a 2001 Ford Windstar minivan with 473,000 miles. The spare tire cable broke off while driving down the highway and he wants to know where he can get an aftermarket spare tire cable, with good enough quality to hold his full size spare wheel. He's like me, who drives a lot.

try an auto parts store that sells dorman parts, but often that's a dealer only or junk yard part
