SOURCE: releasing the spare tire

if you look when you open the trunk right in the middle of the trunk there is a hole which your crank goes in to release the tire that is mounted under it, turn it either left or right to loosen

SOURCE: pull latch on spare tire carrier is broken

Don't know this car, but should be not very much different:

No entire spare tyre there as common today I believe but a so called home comer.

Fixed back down under in the back boot, with a wooden ply board cover?
One bolt to fix her down is common.
Probably you are talking that you can not open the boot because hatch near driver seart is broken or the lock on your boot. Experienced that.
Then you have to struggle in by clapping rear seats down
Get all out and .
Most unwise is to free/ cut the points to which that boot board is hanging.

Now you can't Move the key to open the boot
to fix any rear lock problem. This problem is not the lock mostly (unless you already tried lubing that lock) but the cable coming from front drivers side that unlatches from the inside. It neds to be made moveable again.
Crawling in is a bit dificult to do so.
If only the handle is broken at drivers side, get access at that point by removing the seat (4 bolts I think, Have to shift that seat a bit to retract all four) Try to get now to that mechanism there and fix or replace what is broken. I doubt that the cable itself to the rear is broken.

If that car is in good shape, undoubtedly (only 2001) better have a mechanic at a dealer do it the fastest cheap way, since he has the fastest trick and the original part. If kept well these cars are to last 200.000 miles and 15 years easily. If you maintain them properly. Before becoming an independent brand, KIA has been an outstanding assembling contractor for bigger brands on the market.

So don't break anything you regret later.
Mostly these problems arise from not greasing, lubricating and cleaning the mechanisme.

What do I do if the spare tire assembly won't fully retract on a 2005 T&C

It's probably pretty badly rusted. Put the spare in the rear of the car, and wire the cable up to something so it won't drag until you can work on it.

When you can, spray a huge amount of WD40 into the mechanism. Repeat several times. Work the mechanism back & forth again & again with its crank handle - you might get lucky, it might free up. If not... you'll just have to carry the spare inside the car unless you're willing to replace the spare carrier mechanism.

2004 4 runner: Low tire pressure warning light is on, even though there is no tire pressure issue. Is this a sensor problem? or maybe the light is not working?

the senors tell you if the tire is low or even if the tire is not low if the tires are off a couple pounds from each other then the light will come on.

How do I remove the spare tire on my 2001 chevy surburban?

Typically all Suburban spare tires are mounted on an under-car carrier. This carrier is usually accessed through a covered key way at the rear bumper near the license plate step. The jack that comes with the Suburban also has a crank rod that is used to raise and lower the jack. The other end of the rod is designed to access the key way to crank the spare tire lift up or down. Cranking the lift in a counterclockwise rotation will lower the spare tire.

I hope this helps:)

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

How do I lower the spare tire on a 2002 4runner

Find your tire changing tools. Take the tool with the hook on the end and attach the longer tool to it. Find the oblong shaped hole on the back bumper. The hook end will go in here and connectt to the spare tire winch. A flashlight aimed through the hole will help lining it up. Attach the lug wrench to the end of the hook tool. Rotate counter clockwise until the wheel is down. Remove the part going through the center of the tire and remove the tire.
