There is 3 or 4 bolts that hold the cable assy to the vehicle. You cannot replace just the cable. It has to be replaced as an assy. They are very easy to replace. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Does anyone know where I can find the undermounted spare tire harness ? I have searched all over and it seems that the tailgate harness is available yet I cant locate the undermounted harness. Please...


Hi,
Your spare tire is attached usin a cable system under the rear center of the truck. When you open the liftgate, in the center bottom there is a plastic panel with a bolt in the center near the liftgate door jamb lock mechanism. Use your tire lug nut tool to loosen (turn counterclockwise) this bolt and it will loosen the cable system dropping your spare to the ground. Dont forget to tighten the cable back up raising the retainer back to its original position after using the spare. When you get your flat tire fixed, you can drop the cable again and put your spare back under the truck......Mike

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 do you take off the spare tire from a 2004 escalde


The jack handle fits though a hole in the rear bumper and you turn it and a cable lets the tire lower to the ground. Most cars and trucks with this tire mounted under the rear of the car use this way to hold the tire up until needed, The foot on the end of the cable can be sid stepped and the foot pull though and the tire is free to be put on the car, Many aftermarket wheels won't fit on the foot on the end of the cable and you'll have to put the flat in the car to get it to the service center and then the spare can go up in there and the shop will likly put the spare back where it belongs for the event that you need the spare again.

Car makes noise at the back of the car when i take off like a knocking noise kids say they can fell it when they sit in third row set


Check the spare tire. Sometimes the cable that holds the spare in place loosens and allows the tire to bang around.
