2005 Escape Spare tire- lowering?

<!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->
I know that the spare is underneath the rear cargo area (underside) and I used to have a Ranger and knew how to lower the spare out of that truck, but I cannot find the access point to lower the spare on my 05 Escape- Am I blind? Or does mine have a replacement bumper (possibly from another year) that is missing the access hole? Can someone tell me exactly where to look?

Thanks

My 2004 is under the rear cargo deck not outside.
Did you look under the carpet?

I just found it- the access hole is right underneath the weatherstripping for the rear hatch.
