The jack and wrench also the socket are under the plastic tray located behind passengers seat
If you open the compartment you will see the tray it has a small hole in the front for removing
Once removed you should find all the parts in a styrofoam form
The handle is used to lower the temp spare located at the rear underside of Vette
You will see a bolt head that holds the tire tray up
Loosen until you can slide the tray off the bolt and the tray will lower
Be careful as the rear of the tray is also on a hanger on both sides that may lower on you and must be in correct position to secure
NCM sells owner manuals along with build sheets and window stickers with all the correct info for your car
Good luck

Corvette spare tires are underneath the rear of the car. The jack is in a compartment behind the passenger seat.

Use your search engine and you will find the owner's manual for your car available as a free PDF.

Normally a spare will not fit in the storage area of the corvette. most came with run-flat tires. it is also possible that the car came with a small compressor and some sort or liquid stop leak (ie tireslime) My best advice is to contact a local corvette club or dealer. they can tell you exactly what your vehicle is equipped with.

We have a 2004 Chevy avalanche, we need to get the spare tire down. the lock on the right side of the license plate won't do anything. What do we do?

I can't see anything from here. Do you have an owners manual, if so, look up info for removing spare tire. I looked at your owners manual, It didn't say anything about a lock, so I don't know? If you don't have an owners manual, I can help with that.
I don't like spark tires under the vehicle, the first chance I got, I'd put the spare tire in back of vehicle, easy to get at.
If this was my vehicle, I'd get that spare tire down, one way or the other. Just my opinion.
I realize that isn't the answer you wanted and I apologize. I'd have to look at it.

No owners manual. How do I get to the spare tire? Can't tell if I'm supposed to go through the floor in the back or under the car.

The spare tire in a 1996 Grand Cherokee is supposed to be bolted on the inside the rear trunk area, on the drivers side, not underneath the Jeep as you think. The only thing under there taking up all the space is the gas tank. If it's not in the back, then you don't have one. The jack and tire iron are located under the rear seats.

Took my 2006 sienna in for the spare tire carrier recall. They had to replace the entire assembly. The nut that releases the tire is 5 sided rather than 6. My owners manual doesn't say anything about...

No they supposed to give you the special nut, or installed in the back of your sienna in a little bag inside the crank and jack compartment.

How do I change tire on 2006 jeep

The owner manual will tell you the jack location and the jacking points. Loosen the lugnuts half a turn before you jack it up. Jack it up and remove the nuts. Put on the spare, and reinstall the nuts and run them down. Lower the car and tighten the nuts as tight as you can get them. Then drive the car to a tire shop. The spare is a temporary spare.

Spare tire tools

From the owner's manual for that model, see link below also, page 299 of the PDF has a nice picture.

Spare Tire Removal
Fit the jack handle extension over the drive nut. Use the
Lug Wrench to rotate the nut counter clockwise until the
spare is on the ground with enough slack in the cable to
allow to pull the tire out from under the vehicle.
The winch mechanism is designed for use with the
jack extension tube only. Use of an air wrench or
other power tools is not recommended and can
damage the winch.
When the spare is clear, tilt the retainer at the end of the
cable and pull it through the center of the wheel.

Flat tire

Ford's spares are held in place with a cable that's loosened by inserting the jack handle into the cable crank. it's located below the door sill of the rear door. Look for a hole that the jack handle can be inserted and turn counterclockwise. The tire should lower down for you.
