I recommend that you get the car and back it up on ramps this will require the help of two people and go to Walmart, Auto Zone or Napa and get you a can of PB Blast and spray on the bolts and track also look to see if there is a hole in the rear bumper close to the plate where you stick the black handle in there and turn till the tire comes down and after this is done get you a jar of Anti-seize to put on the bolts and the track before putting the tire back up there

Pathfinder spare tire wench is broken but cant be removed. I have replacement but cant get old one off


You will need to cut the cable to the wench that holds the tire up, no other way to get at the spare to use it.

Does anyone know where I can find the undermounted spare tire harness ? I have searched all over and it seems that the tailgate harness is available yet I cant locate the undermounted harness. Please...


Hi,
Your spare tire is attached usin a cable system under the rear center of the truck. When you open the liftgate, in the center bottom there is a plastic panel with a bolt in the center near the liftgate door jamb lock mechanism. Use your tire lug nut tool to loosen (turn counterclockwise) this bolt and it will loosen the cable system dropping your spare to the ground. Dont forget to tighten the cable back up raising the retainer back to its original position after using the spare. When you get your flat tire fixed, you can drop the cable again and put your spare back under the truck......Mike

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!

Cant get spare tire off


The metal sleeve on the end of the cable,you turn it sideways and push it thru the hole in the wheel. If it is stuck to the wheel just pick up on the wheel then tap the sleeve with a hammer.

Cant get the spare tire released from the hoist cable? Help


If like mine. Let tire down on ground.

Lift edge of tire up to take pressure off cable.and reach in under and turn cross piece parallel to cable.

Then will come out up through the center of wheel.

Just the reverse to put spare back up to storage position.

How do you release the spare tire underneath the truck?


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.
