The spare tyre is on a cradle under the rear of the car. the long crank handle is clipped onto the underside of carpeted boot floor board. The crank handle goes into the hole just above the bumper in the centre of the rear bumper, then wind down the chain and support to release the spare wheel.

SOURCE: Safty lock for spare tire on 2003 chevy silverado

Check your owners manual .There is a saftey catch that will need to be realased by using your bottle jack and tire stops that come with your truck. If you dont have a owners manual. What you can try is taking a floor jack and a socket place it under the spairtire right in the center where the cable holds the tire in place. start jacking it up until the socket hits the square part in the center once the socket is aligned with the square part continue to jack up it should release it . Its a stupid system but it will work if the cable wont allow the tire to drop. good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how to release the spare tire from 2005 pontiac

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 to remove tire from under the van


There is a compartment inside the rear hatch (sometimes on the driver's side and sometimes on the Passenger side) that you can open and your tire changing equipment and instructions will be in there. (unless someone removed it) The jack handle must be used to "crank" the winch to let down the cable that holds the spare tire in place.

How to release the spare tire


I will tell you how to remove the tire but it is a difficult task, best done at a tire repair shop where they have a lift so they are not working on their back. There is a spring-loaded, wire actuated metal clip that holds the
spare from dropping.
It actually prevents the mushroomed end of the plastic sleeve on the
tire cable from passing. You have to loosen the tire, then reach in
with your hand and squeeze the clip with one hand, and angle the
plastic sleeve with the other to release the tire. After I got mine
down, I took the wire piece out. I think the wire piece was supposed
to be some kind of release, but it doesn't work very well.

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!

Where is the spare tire located in a 2000 Dodge Caravan


The Spare tire is under the Van between the Rear bumper and axle.
Check in the cargo area. There is a nut that lowers the spare tire on a cable hidden under a flap in the carpet.
If the tire does not come down all the way then the safety catch is stuck. The tire will come down a few inches and hang by the plastic t-bone holder. You'll need to get underneath the car and either reach over the tire or up in the center hole to release it. It is thinner than the main cable and hard to get at, but with some effort and good hard tug it will release.
It's a horrible design flaw.
After you finally get the spare tire off, you should either lubricate the release catch liberally or disable it completely so you're not stuck again.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Trying to get the spare tire off of my pick up truck


Hello, when you go to let it down can you turn the rod that you are useing to let the tire down? If not then the cable or gear box is rusted solid. That is what usually happens because of the location and lack of use. If it doesn't turn you will have to cut the cable or cradle that holds the tire up. If the rod does turn your spare tire carrier might have a safety catch. The catch can usually be released by putting a jack under the spare tire rim and raising it up. While your doing that turn the rod to crank up the tire. That should release the saftey catch and allow the tire to be lowered down.
