The spare is held in place by a cable that is cranked up and down with a tool that is stored with the jack, the access hole for the tool to crank the spare down is in the rear bumper in most trucks, look underneath to see it and be sure.

How to store spare tire


Is it mounted on the back carrier or underneath the car?

If underneath, open your rear door, on the rear surface where the door locking mechanism is, check for a bolt that can be turned left/right in order to lower the spare tire locking chain.

if it is underneath the car there is a bolt in the trunk on some cars that you will turn with your tire tool and it will lower it down.
Can you explain further what kind of car this is?

I cant get my spare tire down from my 2006 GMC Sierra. I think the mechanism might be stripped.


The spare tire support cable has an additional safety mechanism prevents the spare tire from falling onto the road should the cable break. This mechanism often gets filled up with road grit and won't release properly when you try and lower the spare. If your spare comes down a few inches then won't go any further then this is your problem. There should be some tin brackets included with your jack that are supposed to hold the spare tire up slightly off of the ground to allow some slack in the cable which usually [but not always] will allow the stuck mechanism to come loose. There is a more detailed description of this procedure in the owners manual. IF the spare won't move at all or the mechanism just won't release no matter what you do then you may have to have the entire spare support mechanism replaced.

I cant get the spare out from underneath. there


Check your Owners Manual for the location of the Spare Tire Release. Either underneath the carpet, or behind a cover: there should be a Nut shaped Spare Tire Release that you have to turn (should be counterclockwise) which turns the cable mechanism, which will lower the spare tire. Once the cable has been fully extended, pull the spare tire out from underneath the vehicle. Move the tire slightly back "up" onto the cable and turn the "cap" so you can fit the cap back through the hole in the middle of the tire.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Spare tire removal from underneath van cant seem to get the tire from the bracket is there a specail way to remove it


What's happening is that the latch is not releasing - a safety feature so the tire doesn't drop down onto the road should the cable or assembly rust/break etc. While researching I got this info from another forum: Jack up the rear of the van. Wind the spare "up". now put your jack under the spare to support its weight. Then "unwind" it. now look up through the spare to the winch assembly. You'll see a latch at the back - towards the rear of the van. Reach in with a long screwdriver and release it by moving it towards the rear of the van. If you've unwound the winch you should be able to move the plastic holder downwards. Once you've done this you can allow the tire to come down and remove it. Now remove the winch assembly - 5 or 6 bolts. Odds are you'll see apiece of wire hanging or it may have fallen out. You'll also see a spring clip - it clips onto the underside so when you unwind the winch it should pull the aforementioned latch to release the tire. You should be able to get this back in place by fiddling with it, or just attach a wire to the latch to work it manually. Or buy a new winch assembly - approx. $150. Good luck

Unloading spare tire 2005 trailblazer


After you open the rear hatch look on the sill of the frame on the right hand side of the truck. You must insert the Jack crank into the hole and turn it counter clockwise to release the holder and the tire will tilt down from underneath. If it does not release then you may have to pull it down as the mechanism has been known to seize. After you open the rear hatch look on the sill of the frame on the right hand side of the truck.

Where is the spare tire located in a 2000 Dodge Caravan


The Spare tire is under the Van between the Rear bumper and axle.
Check in the cargo area. There is a nut that lowers the spare tire on a cable hidden under a flap in the carpet.
If the tire does not come down all the way then the safety catch is stuck. The tire will come down a few inches and hang by the plastic t-bone holder. You'll need to get underneath the car and either reach over the tire or up in the center hole to release it. It is thinner than the main cable and hard to get at, but with some effort and good hard tug it will release.
It's a horrible design flaw.
After you finally get the spare tire off, you should either lubricate the release catch liberally or disable it completely so you're not stuck again.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Spare Tire


I had the same problem, but finally figured it out.
Open the back door, and look for a hole dead center, you'll see the crank plug that holds the tire up.
Using the jack crank put it through the hole into it and go counterclockwise. You should soon notice the tire beginning to lower. It seems pretty lame, but at least you don't have to hold the spare up with a jack and undo a bolt, which I have had to do on past vehicles.
