Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy

Cannot remove the left rear tire.

I cannot remove the left rear tire (I have a flat!). I have all of the lug nuts off, but it will not budge. There is a shallow, cone shaped peice in the center of the wheel that looks like it also needs to be removed. Any suggestions?

Make sure the vehicle is secure on the jack... you should also have a floor jack for safety.... take your foot or a sledge hammer and hit the edges of the tire... it will come off.

How to release tether holding spare tire

There is a lug wrench in the rear acess panel that holds the jack and wrench. Depending on your van, either lift up on the cargo bin door in the rear and you will see a hex shaped nut or in the 2nd row seats there is a little circle that is cut out of the carpet with the same hex shaped nut undeerneath. Use the lug wrench and turn the nut counterclockwise to lower the spare tire to the ground....Mike

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.

One of the bolts holding the left rear tire on sheared off when I was rotating my tires.The parts are cheap but how do I replace the bolt?

Remove the tire, and the brake drum. With a suitable punch, and safety glasses on, drive the broken stud towards the center of the car. The stud will push away from you, thru the hub, and fall out. Get the new stud, and poke it thru the now existing hole on the hub. Place a flat washer over the stud, and thread a lug nut onto the stud, and tighten the lugnut until the stud is pulled all of the way into the hub. Remove the lug nut and the washer, and refite the drum and the wheel.

Flat tire will not come off of vehicle

Not to sound like an *** but hit it harder? Theres nothing else holding you wheel on except corrosion. If you put one lug nut on loose and then hit the tire from the back and keep spinning it hitting it in a different spot each time it should fall right off and the lug will stop it from flying.
