    I have the same problem...with my '99.. sadly, this is a major design fault.. the safety clip that is preventing the tire from dropping when the cable is released is all rusted and frozen... you will have to crawl under the vehicle and unbolt the entire unit... there are 5 bolts that hold the unit to the underside of the van. I just did this for the second time this past Saturday... again everything was rusted solid... I thought I had repaired that several years ago when I greased it all up.. but no. The cable appears to be stailess steel, no rust on it at all... so I coated it wth bearing grease, and reinistalled the whole thing. No loger have the safety latch, but tha is no concern to me. The cable will have to be good enough until I can get a large bolt with a wing nut installed through the wheel....

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.

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.

Is there any where to place a full sized spare tire in a 2008 grand caravan?


According to a dodge salesman, the spare tire cover is big enough to take a full size tire. Folks who pull trailers want full size tires so Chrysler made the cavity under the front seats big enough for one. Still, I expect it will be a pain to pull a full size tire out from under the middle of the van.

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.

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.

If you have sow and go seating as they call it, the spare is under the van, in the center. I've heard it is a dandy thing to get at.

Check the large hose leaving the brake power booster (under the hood, directly in front of where the driver sits, large round diaphragm). That hose will run into the top of your engine, it may be off, or the hose may be cracked.
