SOURCE: replacing spare tire winch 2004 chev trailblazer

I have a '02 TrailBlazer and I had the same problem. When I got a flat and went to change the tire on the side of the road I was not able to get the tire off the winch. Luckly, I have AAA and the driver knew the trick to getting the tire free. The process involved lowering the tire as far as it would go and then kicking it. Wind back up and repeat until the winch free's itself.

When I took the car into the shop to get the tire fixed and the have the spare put back on the car, they were not able to get the winch free enough to put the tire back on. They said that is is a common problem with this mechanism and suggested replacing the winch system (estmated parts and labor $215). From what I can tell the winch accumulates rust up in the cable and locks up.

Fold back seat down where your scissor jack is located, use the same handle for the jack to lower the spare tire. The portal hole for that is just under back bumper or near license plate.

Hello, this vehicle has a locking device to keep the spare tire from falling down. you will have to perform these steps to remove spare tire.

  • Turn the folding wrench clockwise to raise the jack until it lifts the secondary latch device under the wheel plate.

  • Lower the jack by turning the folding wrench counterclockwise. Keep lowering the jack until the compact spare tire is resting on the folding wrench

    How do i remove the spare tyre off the rodeo


    There should be 2 steel rods that you join together in your tool kit behind or under seat depending on cab style (near jack) using another handle or on some the wheel nut wrench for turning handle this goes in black plastic rectangular tube at rear of tub or tray and inserts into winch that holds up spare tyre, anti clockwise lowers. Some models with rear bumper bar may have round plug to take out first (left side)When tyre on ground make sure cable is loose (slack) so you can then get holding braket out of centre hole in rim.

    Hello! Here is procedure to remove spare tire...Guru...saailer



    1. Park on a level surface and put on the emergency brake. If the car is near the side of a road, switch on the hazard lights.
    2. Locate the tire repair kit. It consists of a jack, a jack rod and a wheel nut wrench. In the regular cab, pull the entire seat bench forward. The tools are located behind the drivers seat. The King cab model has a tool case located directly behind the driver's seat. The Crew cab stows the tools behind the back bench. Pull the bench forward and remove the tools.
    3. Insert the square end of the jack rod into the square hole in the nut wrench. This gives the jack rod a handle.
    4. Find an oval shaped hole in the back of the truck under the middle of the tailgate. Look through the hole and find the winch for the spare tire. It is a circle with two notches.
    5. Insert the T-shaped end of the jack rod into the hole. Slip the T-shape into the double notched circle of the winch.
    6. Turn the jack rod counterclockwise to lower the spare tire to the ground.
    7. When the tire is completely lowered to the ground, remove the center retainer chain and pull the tire out from under the truck.
    8. Wind the jack rod clockwise to completely retract the retainer chain

Now look to your right and you will see a compartment (it has to lock clips at top) pull open clips and remove panel inside you will find lug wrench jack and jack handle. remove wrench and go back to that flap and using your lug wrench loosen the nut. At this time your spare tire will be suspended by a cable and will be heading towards the ground look under back of van and there is your spare.

    I need to know how to get the spare tire from under the Uplander. I am second owner and have no manual for my van. Please help me.


    Do you have the original jack and related tools I hope? The jack is located in the rear passenger side access panel at the back of your van. The jack and related tools are in a black bag wrapped around the jack and the whole thing is attached to the inside wall. In the bag, you have two tools. One is a wrench with the flip out socket at the end that you use to remove the lug nuts to your wheels. The other tool is a rod. The rod on one end has a hex bolt that fits your lug nut tool and the other end is a flat tip screwdriver. With the rear left gate open, you can look along the top of your bumper surface just under the rubber seal and to left of the gate lock pin by a few inches you will see a hole. This is where the flat tip screwdriver tool is inserted. Insert into the hole and rotate the rod to engage the slotted tip in the hole. With your lug nut wrench, attach it to the hex head end so you can turn it. Turning it counter clockwise while holding into the hole will lower your spare wheel to the ground. You then have to flex the wheel support on the end of the cable sideways to fit through the hub of the wheel to get the spare out. I think this mount is for just the spare and stock hub cap wheels. If you have custom wheels, you will have to carry the flat inside the vehicle to get it to a garage to fix it. To dive off, make sure you turn the crank tool clockwise to recoil your cable so it is not on the ground. The same is true when you Put your spare back. To put it back on, lower the cable, insert the support through the hub of the wheel and ensure it grabs the hub so the wheel does not fall off. Crank the cable clockwise to raise the wheel. It will get hard to turn when the wheel is all the way up. The space saver spare is stored under the vehicle with the air stem pointed down so you can air it up without having to take it off the vehicle. (60PSI)

    I hope this is enough detail and that you have all the equipment. Also, Caution, I learned the hard way that the original jack is not very strong. If possible, be on a level surface when using it with no one getting in and out of the vehicle. Mine failed due to being on slight hill with kids getting in and out.

    I hope this helps.

    assembly equipped with a secondary latch system.It is designed to stop the spare

    5.Turn the wrench counterclockwise until approximately 6 inches (15 cm) of cable is
    exposed.
    6.Attach the jack handle,extension and the wheel wrench to the jack and place it under
    the vehicle towards the front of the rear bumper.Position the center lift point of the

    until the spare tire slides off the jack or is hanging by the cable.
    10.Disconnect the jack handle from the jack and carefully remove the jack.Use one hand

    with the other hand.

    There is a wire handle that you use to remove the plastic centre cap then you put the jack at the jacking point. Before the wheel comes off the ground use the wheel brace which is also the jack handle to slighly loosen the wheel nuts. Jack the wheel completely off the ground and remove the wheel nuts and then the wheel

    Can't get the spare tire off from underneath the vehicle


    Under the back seat, you will find a jack, the jack-handle serves as a turning device to lower the rear wheel. In the rear bumper section of the car you will find a hole to put this in. The rod will catch in a link that you can turn, which raises and lowers the wheel. All of this should be in the manual.
