    Thanks so much.

    Thanks for the help.  There still seems to be a wing nut object that keeps the spare up?  I found the cable hoist.  The tire just doesnt seem to lower when I crank?  Thanks again.

  • Cary57 Nov 10, 2008

    Thanks again.  I have lowered the spare.  I just cant seem to get it off the cable. There is a wing nut device on one side of the spare.  The cable runs through the tire.  I sure appreciate all the info. I'm almost there if you can help with the cable/wing nut.  I cant seem to free the spare.

The spare is held in place by a cable hoist, the the tool kit for changing tires has the crank to lower the spare. the access hole is through the bumper in most cases, look under the rear bumper u will see the crankin down access easily that way.

    Try cranking in both directions, 9They can be a bitc...) some are counter clockwise some the other way, not sure about which wing nut, but think that it is the one that holds the spare to the cable hoist lifting adapter.

How to take a spare tire off gmc envoy 2004


Since the spare is mounted under the rear of the car, Its not easy...you have to assemble the long crank rod out of its two pieces, then feed the rod through the hole in the top of the rear bumper and lock it into the mechanism that holds the tire in place. Once the crank rod is locked in, lower the tire towards the ground. Once the tire is low enough, you can crawl under the car and release the tire from its mount. The hardest part is locking the crank rod into the spare tire mechanism through the hole in the bumper.

How do i remove the spare tire on a 2009 dodge ram


It should tell in your owner's manual. One of the factory-supplied tire changing tools may work for it.

My daugher has a 2008 prius, had a flat tire and now has the spare tire on. What is the maximum distance and speed she should drive


I do not know the maximum distance, but there should be a wear indicator on the tire. Usually the max speed on doughnut tires is around 50 mph but the owners manual will clarify. Usually the spare will have a max speed posted on it somewhere with a sticker.
Please let me know if I can further assist you.

My honda odyssey touring does not have a spare tire. We bought this as a brand new car. The first time i had a flat tire we checked everywhere in the car even with AAA service help and we were not able to...


2005 Honda Odyssey TOURING models originally came with Michelin PAX run-flats and eliminated the traditional dough-nut spare. If your van no longer has run-flats (look at the tire size) then your van has already been De-PAX'd...count your lucky stars because PAX tires run about 300 a tire plus!!! If you have been De-PAX'd then you will need a donut spare (T135/80D17) this goes into the spare tire space located behind the 3rd row of seats. this Site has everything you will need for the spare http://www.hondapartworld.com/1534_SPARE-SHJ

Stering wheel shakes at 30 to 40 miles an hour


Put your spare tire on one side of the front. Drive it, if it does not help, replace the spare and then try removing the other front tire. Drive it and see if it helped.

The tire that caused the vibration probably threw a weight or has a broken belt. Have that tire checked and repaired, then have the Tire shop put the spare back in the trunk.

If it is not a tire problem check your tierod ends. They connect both front wheels and if there is a lot of play, you can get shake and wobble from the slack in the frontend.

Sometimes front Rotors can cause a shake when you hit the brakes. If the car shakes without pressing the brakes, then its the tires or frontend.

2004 avalanche..46k miles..was making a noise that sounded like something was warped ..abs would engage below 5 mph..took to repair shop and they replaced both front hubs..said the abs was fixed ..sensors...


Try rotating your tires from front to back. It may help with the noise. Get a front-end alignment which can also help with the noise by correcting a "rub" sound that originates from the 2 front tires fighting each other for control.

The place which replaced your bearings is probably correct. When you get bad bearings they do not always fail evenly across the 360 degree turning of the bearing race. If you imagine a donut with a flat spot representing your bearing- as the donut spins with the flat spot cause by a disintegrating roller, the tire is bolted to the donut. The tire is going to hit the pavement differently every rotation because of the play in the bearing is at that same spot.

This play will create small cups in the tire shape at the low spot transmitted by the bearing. When you replaced the bearing , the marks in your tire tread remained. These edges need to be worn off. Or some tire stores can Shave a tire, in an attempt to make it round again.

If you have a normal size spare, you can put the spare on the left front side of your vehicle and see if the noise goes away. If the rims are different on the spare, you can have everything remounted and pay for rebalancing and put the unused spare as a front tire. Then you know the spare is at least good as a spare, but noisy.

How do you take off the spare tire from a 2004 escalde


The jack handle fits though a hole in the rear bumper and you turn it and a cable lets the tire lower to the ground. Most cars and trucks with this tire mounted under the rear of the car use this way to hold the tire up until needed, The foot on the end of the cable can be sid stepped and the foot pull though and the tire is free to be put on the car, Many aftermarket wheels won't fit on the foot on the end of the cable and you'll have to put the flat in the car to get it to the service center and then the spare can go up in there and the shop will likly put the spare back where it belongs for the event that you need the spare again.

Looking how to lower spare tire on toyota sienna van


Hello. Welcome to FixYa! Please allow us to assist you.

The procedure is as follows, to remove the spare tire from a 2WD Sienna:

Move the passenger seat as far forward as possible.
Move the passenger side middle seat back as far as possible.
Obtain your tire tool (the one you would use to remove the lugnuts)
Observe the carpeting behind the front passenger seat; you will see a small piece of carpet, like a small 'flap', that can be raised.
Under this flap is a small silver 'bolt'. Fit the lug wrench onto this bolt, and rotate it. This will lower the cable that raises the spare tire up under the area between the passenger front and rear seats.

Note: 4WD Siennas do not have any spare tires, as they came with 'run-flat' tires. Toyota did not fit a spare on the 4WD units.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.
