Cannot remove spare tire from undercarriage


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.
  • Keep raising the jack until the compact spare tire stops moving upward and is held firmly in place. This lets you know that the secondary latch has released.
  • Lower the jack by turning the folding wrench counterclockwise. Keep lowering the jack until the compact spare tire is resting on the folding wrench

    I have a flat tire and i cant figure out how to get the spare tire off. please help


    if it is underneath the car there is a bolt in the trunk on some cars that you will turn with your tire tool and it will lower it down.
    Can you explain further what kind of car this is?

    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!

    How do i get the spare tire to come down


    If the spare tire does not lower to the ground,the secondary latch is engaged
    causing the tire not to lower Your vehicle has an underbody-mounted tire hoist
    assembly equipped with a secondary latch system.It is designed to stop the spare
    tire from suddenly falling off your vehicle if the cable holding the spare tire
    is damaged.For the secondary latch to work,the tire must be stored with the
    valve stem pointing up.
    1.Check under the vehicle to see if the cable is visible.If it is not visible
    proceed to Step 6.
    2.If visible,first try to tighten the cable by turning the wheel wrench clockwise
    until you hear two clicks or feel it skip twice.You cannot overtighten the cable.
    3.Loosen the cable by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise three or four turns.
    4.Repeat this procedure at least two times.If the spare tire lowers to the ground
    continue with Step 2 of removing 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
    jack under the center of the spare tire.
    7.Turn the wrench clockwise to raise the jack until it lifts the end fitting.
    8.Continue raising the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is held firmly
    in place.
    9.Lower the jack by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise.Keep lowering the jack
    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
    to push against the spare while firmly pulling the jack out from under the spare tire
    with the other hand.

    I can not remove the spare tire on my 2001 Chrystler Town and Country. The spare only comes down a few inches. It don't come down to the ground like it should.


    Are you using the rod and turning the crank to lower the spare tire? There will be a little hold along the trim of the trunk opening by the top of the bumper. You need to insert the rod into this hole and crank it to lower the tire

    Flat tire


    Ford's spares are held in place with a cable that's loosened by inserting the jack handle into the cable crank. it's located below the door sill of the rear door. Look for a hole that the jack handle can be inserted and turn counterclockwise. The tire should lower down for you.

    The tools are under the second row seats. The hole for the spare tire lowering mech. is above the rear bumper when you lift the tail gate. Put the proper tool down the hole, turn counter clockwise, lowers spare. Reverse to bring up.

    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.

    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.
