I need a spare tire lift for 2005 pontiac montana sv6 ??


It's not safe to put on a spare tire meant for one car onto another car, even if they do fit. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Were is the spare tire located and how do you get it out.


I have a few years earlier Dodge Caravan. 2000 I think. The tire is under the rear cargo area and there is a big bolt under a flap of carpet inside the back cargo area which I believe you must loosen to get the tire off its bracket. Looks like lug nut size.

No spare tire


It should be located underneath the rear end of the vehicle. If it's not there, someone removed it. The owners manual will give you detailed instructions on how to remove your spare. Your local dealership can help you find one if yours is missing.

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!

Spare tire removal from underneath van cant seem to get the tire from the bracket is there a specail way to remove it


What's happening is that the latch is not releasing - a safety feature so the tire doesn't drop down onto the road should the cable or assembly rust/break etc. While researching I got this info from another forum: Jack up the rear of the van. Wind the spare "up". now put your jack under the spare to support its weight. Then "unwind" it. now look up through the spare to the winch assembly. You'll see a latch at the back - towards the rear of the van. Reach in with a long screwdriver and release it by moving it towards the rear of the van. If you've unwound the winch you should be able to move the plastic holder downwards. Once you've done this you can allow the tire to come down and remove it. Now remove the winch assembly - 5 or 6 bolts. Odds are you'll see apiece of wire hanging or it may have fallen out. You'll also see a spring clip - it clips onto the underside so when you unwind the winch it should pull the aforementioned latch to release the tire. You should be able to get this back in place by fiddling with it, or just attach a wire to the latch to work it manually. Or buy a new winch assembly - approx. $150. Good luck

How to release the spare tire from 2005 pontiac montana


you should have a tool that looks like a long rod with a bend that you can crank that you need to slide into the hold along the top of the bumper (hatch needs to be open to see the hole) and then crank the rod and the tire should lower down

How do i unlock the spare tire?


If the spare is under the rear of the van you will have to open the rear hatch and lift the carpet up to reveal what looks like a big nut. Using the wrench that you take the tires off with turn that nut counter clockwise and that will lower the spare tire. Turn it the other way to raise the tire.

How do I release the spare tire from under my van? 94 Dodge Caravan


It is underneath the van at the back. Open the rear hatch door and look for a little piece of carpet cut in a square on the right side. Lift that and there should be a bolt there that you can turn with the tire wrench. That will lower the tire.

Spare tire location?


With the new 2008 models, the spare tire was moved from the rear of the van to a spot below the front seats. The lug for the tire winch is located under a round cover in the floor just in front of and between the two front seats. If you look under the van, you will see the black tire-shaped cover for the spare.
