The cable that lowers the spare tire will not release the tire all the way so there isnt enough slack to remove the spare


spray the cable and all the turning parts with liquid wrench. wind it back up, spray what you can and lower again. repeat this until things free up. probably just dirt and salt and rocks

Removing the spare tire from a 2005 Chev Silverado


These can be very difficult to deal with. What I've found is that the safety catch gets filled with grit and won't release properly. We usually support the tire with blocks so the weight of the tire is not on the cable and then you can, sometimes, reach up and work the safety catch enough to get it to disengage...But I have seen them so stuck that we've had to cut the secondary lock off which means you have to replace it if you want your spare back under the chassis again. I see the most problems with these in gravel and dirt road areas or areas that use lots of salt and sand in the winter.

Safty lock for spare tire on 2003 chevy silverado will not release..tried cranking it all the way back up and lowering it down again but the lock would not release the tire i have been stuck on the road...


Check your owners manual .There is a saftey catch that will need to be realased by using your bottle jack and tire stops that come with your truck. If you dont have a owners manual. What you can try is taking a floor jack and a socket place it under the spairtire right in the center where the cable holds the tire in place. start jacking it up until the socket hits the square part in the center once the socket is aligned with the square part continue to jack up it should release it . Its a stupid system but it will work if the cable wont allow the tire to drop. good luck and keep me posted.

2007 Silverado Pick-Up Spare tire won't release We have a flat tire and cannot get the spare out. The directions didn't help.


I would not cut the cable lift. See if there is a way that you can unbolt it so you can un bind the cable. If the tire does not move at all, you might not be catching the knob in the bumper. I would try using the square end. Push it in while SLOWLY turning it to make sure you catch it. Some times you might have to tighten it before you can loosen the tire.

Spare tire won't release.


This is the worst GM engineering i have ever seen !!!! The secondary locking mech. rust itself in the locked position on will NOT allow the tire to lower. After lowering the tire down approx. 2-4" the saftey lock is still engaged. I was able to reach above the tire and remove the bolt holding the hoist in place. {15 mm wrench}. Keep a floor jack under the tire to support it and as not to fall on your head. After removing the bolt the hoist is hooked on the frame member and must be lifted off to remove. Once you get it on the garage floor it is possible to disengage the locking mech. with a few tools and a big hammer. Good luck This should be a Recall

If the tire does not lower with the jack parts from the access door then you will have to put the jack up under the presseurerelease in the middle of the tire till it releases.
