Any chassis mounted spare tire, or spare tires that are stored under the vehicle will eventually rust out and they are prone to problems from being subjected to road grunge, ice, salt, ect.

best to do preventative maintanence, lowering it at least 2 times /yr, grease it up, clean any debris and put it back up.

Your post was cut short, but cable that holds the spare in place is what I think u were asking, and that would be what u call it, 'the cable that secures the spare tire, or lowers the spare tire'

You will need a socket and wrench. There is a metal cage taht holds the tire that is secured by a bolt or multiple bolts

How to take a spare tire off gmc envoy 2004


Since the spare is mounted under the rear of the car, Its not easy...you have to assemble the long crank rod out of its two pieces, then feed the rod through the hole in the top of the rear bumper and lock it into the mechanism that holds the tire in place. Once the crank rod is locked in, lower the tire towards the ground. Once the tire is low enough, you can crawl under the car and release the tire from its mount. The hardest part is locking the crank rod into the spare tire mechanism through the hole in the bumper.

How to remove tire from under the van


There is a compartment inside the rear hatch (sometimes on the driver's side and sometimes on the Passenger side) that you can open and your tire changing equipment and instructions will be in there. (unless someone removed it) The jack handle must be used to "crank" the winch to let down the cable that holds the spare tire in place.

How do you get the spare tire lowered?


on some vans like a caravan, windstar ect. there is a little cap located on the floorboard near the back of the vehicle. you have to pop the hatch to see it. lft the plastic cap to reveal a bolt. take the tire iron/lug wrench and turn this bolt. this lowers the cable that holds the spare under the vehicle. when the tire is low enough you can turn the piece of metal at the end of the cable sideways and feed it thru the center of the rim freeing it from the cable. I had the same issue with my ford windstar minivan. I felt stupid when I finally figured it out. I almost cut the cable!!! i'm sure anything that has the spare underneath the vehicle is simular.

Where is the spare tire located on a 1995 ford aerostar?


Section 00-02: Lifting, Jacking and Spare Tire Stowage 1995 Aerostar, Ranger, Explorer Workshop Manual
TIRE STOWAGE Tire, Spare, Removal, Aerostar If the Aerostar is a standard length vehicle the spare tire is mounted inside to a carrier at the left rear quarter panel. To remove the spare tire, remove the wing nut and plate. A flat tire can be temporarily stowed in the same location.



If the Aerostar is the bus with a standard length body or extended length (all models), the temporary spare tire is stowed at the rear of the vehicle under the body. The Aerostar standard length E-4WD bus spare tire is mounted on the floor.
  1. Insert lug nut wrench into the actuator hole and turn counterclockwise until the cable extends to allow the spare tire to be pulled rearward from under the vehicle.
  1. Slide spare tire to the rear and remove the retainer from the wheel.
  1. To stow cable/retainer with spare tire removed, insert cable fitting into carrier rear wall slot, place wheel retainer against the carrier, and turn lug nut wrench clockwise until slack is removed.
please rate, thanks

2003 chevy surb... can not release my spare tire...cable is broken ,,,nothing to pull on help !


If when you turn the crank nothing happens to drop the tire. Look up inside and see if the cable is loose (most likely not) if not the assembly is broken, you will have to cut the plate that holds tire up and replace the spare tire cable and crank assembly.

Spare tire fell off undercarrage and I need to fix the cable that holds it


There is 3 or 4 bolts that hold the cable assy to the vehicle. You cannot replace just the cable. It has to be replaced as an assy. They are very easy to replace. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Trying to get the spare tire off of my pick up truck


Hello, when you go to let it down can you turn the rod that you are useing to let the tire down? If not then the cable or gear box is rusted solid. That is what usually happens because of the location and lack of use. If it doesn't turn you will have to cut the cable or cradle that holds the tire up. If the rod does turn your spare tire carrier might have a safety catch. The catch can usually be released by putting a jack under the spare tire rim and raising it up. While your doing that turn the rod to crank up the tire. That should release the saftey catch and allow the tire to be lowered down.
