Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

Tire hoist will not lift back up.

I currently own a 2002 chevy trailblazer and recently changed the tire that was under the truck. When I tried to place the tire back on the tire hoist, the cable seems to be locked and will not retract back under neath the truck. Is there anything that can be done to unlock this.

Please help.

No the hoist must be replaced, they are famous for this, all trucks use the same one.

Vibration in front end of Chevy Trailblazer 4x4


Does the shake match tire rotation or drive shaft rotation speed? If it's at tire rotation speed,have the new tires been dynamically balanced on a brand name motorized balancer?Re balance them that way.If a wheel weight has come off you will have a shake.You can also rotate the tires from front to back and see if that helps.Also,brake rotors can be out of balance and even with a perfectly balanced tire,the rotor can throw the balance off.

The best place to go and get one is the Salvage Yard, it's will cost you $25,00 if you pull it off the scrap trailblazer. Or you can have them pull one out for you but will cost more, Good luck and hope this helps.

Spare tire won't release.


This is the worst GM engineering i have ever seen !!!! The secondary locking mech. rust itself in the locked position on will NOT allow the tire to lower. After lowering the tire down approx. 2-4" the saftey lock is still engaged. I was able to reach above the tire and remove the bolt holding the hoist in place. {15 mm wrench}. Keep a floor jack under the tire to support it and as not to fall on your head. After removing the bolt the hoist is hooked on the frame member and must be lifted off to remove. Once you get it on the garage floor it is possible to disengage the locking mech. with a few tools and a big hammer. Good luck This should be a Recall

Hoist to lower spare tire does not work.


Same thing happened to me on my 2002 trailblazer. The last few wraps of the cable was corroded to the point that it wouldn't unwind with the tool supplied. First thing to do is cut the crimped end of the cable off with a grinder or cut off wheel but don't forget to support the spare. This will get the spare out of your way then simply take out the 3 mounting bolts for the cable hoist. At this point you could buy a new cable hoist from the dealer and install it yourself or you might be able to do what I did. I managed to pull and remove about a foot of the rusted cable, slide the rectangular metal piece, that actually holds the spare at the center of the wheel, back on the cable and attach a 1/4" cable clamp to the end of the cable which of course must be in good condition. There should still be enough cable to re-attach your spare to it and hoist it back up. Don't forget to lube things up so it won't happen again. Good luck. (buying a new one sounds better, doesn't it?)
