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.

    After the first time it should remove any rust and break apart evrything from holding it in place. Before you raise it back up just put some grease on it or WD 40.

Remove starter 2003 chev 1500 pickup 5.3 engine


ark your Chevy Avalanche on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter.

  • 2 Remove the positive battery cable nut and the engine harness ground nut. Disconnect the positive battery cable and ground wire from the solenoid.
  • 3 Unscrew and remove the starter mounting bolts. Place all nuts and bolts in a safe place to prevent loss, such as a baby food jar.
  • 4 Detach the heat shield if necessary. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
  • 5 Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it.
  • 6 Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual by registering with the Chevy Owner Center (see Resources).
  • 7 Install the new starter motor by reversing the removal process. Tighten the heat shield nut to 44 inch pounds (five Nm) and the bolt to 35 inch pounds (three Nm).
  • 8 Torque the starter mounting bolts to 37 foot pounds (50 Nm). Tighten the ground wire retaining nut to 30 inch pounds (3.4 Nm) and the positive battery cable retaining nut to 80 inch pounds (nine Nm).
  • 9 Lower your Avalanche back to the ground. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the key in the ignition to see if your new starter motor functions correctly.

    How do i release the spare tire on my 2005 Kia Sedona


    Hi, the spare tire is stored on the underside of the vehicle, under the right-side cargo door. The bolt is located in a recessed area that is protected by a small square plastic covering. To remove the spare tire, find and remove the bolt cover, then use your lug nut wrench to loosen the bolt holding the tire.
    Remove the spare tire fastener's plastic cover, place the lug nut wrench onto the lug nut holding the tire onto the bolt, turn the wrench in a counter-clockwise direction until the tire is released and reaches the ground.

  • Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the spare tire to the ground. Continue to rotate the shaft until the spare tire can be pulled out from under the vehicle and removed. If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower.
  • If the secondary latch is engaged and the cable end is visible, perform the following procedure: 3.1. Tighten the cable by rotating the hoist shaft clockwise until you hear 2 clicks or feel it skip twice. You cannot overtighten the cable. 3.2. Loosen the cable by rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns. 3.3. If the spare tire can be lowered, repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if the spare tire can be removed. 3.4. If the spare tire cannot be lowered, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable is exposed. 3.5. Raise and support the vehicle. 3.6. Place a transmission jack, or equivalent, under the spare tire. 3.7. Position the center of the transmission jack under the secondary latch release button at the center of the spare tire. Arrange the arms of the transmission jack so they will support the tire after it has been released. 3.8. Raise the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is firmly held in place, releasing the secondary latch. 3.9. Lower the tire. If the spare tire is hanging by the cable, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until the tire is low enough to remove.

    I can't seem to remove my spare tire


    what part is troubling you? If you're looking for the location where you lower the tire, there's a little black door on the bumper, next to the license plate that you have to open, then there's usually a lock to remove with your key, then you insert the tire iron and turn the only direction that it will turn. This will lower the tire so you can get it off the cable, raise it back up, and be on your way.

    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
