Spare tire fell off

While I was changing the rear brake lines, I noticed that the spare tire was missing...upon a closer look I noticed that the cable that suports the tire had corroded and snaped off. I wll probably buy a new cable mechanisim to reinstall a new spare tire...I was wondering if anyone has another idea for my spare....what a dumb system.....someone may have died, or been badly injured when this happened....GM should have recalled all vehicles that are using this system!

The only thing I can recomend is get a swing away tire rack that mounts to the back of the blazer. you might be able to get one from a junk yard as they were stock on some Blazers.

I have an 07 GMC Envoy, it has a rattle in the rear passenger side. Just got the brakes done they could not figure it out. Any Ideas to what it could be????

Look inside as well as outside for anything loose. Sound travels really well in a car, more so I've noticed in an SUV. Look for missing panel clips/retainers, check the spare tire, Jack, and tools and make sure they are all secure.

Sounds like tire size is different. Hope rim size is same. The ABS can sometimes react with Traction control counters and when one tire spins at a different rate due to size differences, the Warnings would light up.
Dislodged brake sensors. When jacking or changing tires, sometimes the sensors which plug in can slide out of their positions.

All of a sudden i have spongy brakes on my 92 f 250. changed master cyl and booster. and rubber brake hoses. still spongy and nothing is leaking.brakes went from being good to spongy in one...

Check the rear wheel cylinders? Was anything leaking at the master cylinder? Does it have ABS?
Check the front caliper slides are free. Check the front caliper pistons for leaks as well. This is all assuming you bled the brakes(all 4 wheels) properly after all that replacement! You're getting air from somewhere for sure or if it has ABS, the pump may have a problem.

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee uneven brake wear.

All brakes wear unevenly, no matter the make or model. I have been fixing cars for a job for 50 years and that is a lot of experience. Front brakes are the worst for uneven wear.

Spare tire fell off undercarrage and I need to fix the cable that holds it

There is 3 or 4 bolts that hold the cable assy to the vehicle. You cannot replace just the cable. It has to be replaced as an assy. They are very easy to replace. Good luck. Hope this helps.

2001 Audi A4 - Knocking in the front end while braking

Providing that the c/v joints are in good condition, the dealers diagnosis sounds reasonable. However, changing two tires may not solve the problem. In reality the rolling circumference of all four tires must match. Mating two new tires to two partially worn tires may get you closer but still not where you should be.
In four wheel drive vehicles, this situation becomes more critical because the transfer case cannot operate properly when front tires are going at a different speed than the rear ones. This can cause the t case to fail (far worse than your problem) Owners of 4x4's generally change all four tires even getting down to matching production lot #s when possible to ensure exact diameter match up. Tire sizes also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer same #s are not always the same size! Therefore using two tires of a different brand can cause a problem as well.
I haven't "cured" anything, but I hope this gives you a better understanding of what you are dealing with.
good luck.
