Insert the winch rod and wind it down. There is a clutch lock incorporated in the winch and it will take some effort to release it but basically just wind it down.

How do you remove the spare on a 2005 chevy colorado


Spare Tire Colorado 2005 will not come down.
The safety hatch was rusted and did move when the friction powered lever tried to release it when the tire was lowered with the crank. The spare came down an inch or so. I used a flashlight to see how the hatch worked. It was easy to see the mechanism thru the openings in the rim. If the hatch has got the slightest friction due to rust, it will not move, since the force delivered by the lever is very low due to the low torque given to it by the friction coupling at the crank axle. The function of the mechanism can easily be seen on the pictures. The procedure to get the spare down after a long time of not being in use is as follows:
  1. Crank down the spare a little in order to release it so it can be turned around for maximum accessibility of the hatch system, which is accessed thru the rim openings.
  2. Shine with a flashlight thru the openings and locate the hatch pin and the maneuver lever.
  3. Move the crank a little back and forth to learn how the lever works. Let go of the crank after a tire-down movement. The lever is supposed to release the hatch. The hatch will of course not release, since it is frozen. Normally the hatch is returned to "lock" position with the aid of a leaf spring when the crank is rotated "up".
  4. Grab a crowbar or similar rigid steel bar and persuade the hatch to open by just bang on the pin in the same direction that the lever wants to move it.
  5. When you see that the pin, which is attached to the safety hatch, has moved to the end of the groove, then continue the cranking in order to lower the spare to the ground.
  6. Remove the spare. Use WD40 to loosen up the hatch and all moving parts, but WD40 is not a long-term lubrication solution. After the WD40 treatment, use a good industrial lubricant or motorcycle chain oil to lube the hatch. Just soak the whole works with oil!
  7. Exercise the spare tire mechanism at least once or twice a year to keep it in good condition. Use your oil spray every time and the system will probably work fine for the next century...
One picture, the one where the system is not lubricated shows the pin. The lever is moved away from its working position to show the hatch pin arrangement. The other picture shows the system in working order.

My 2006 chevy colorado is making a clicking sound and won't turn over


Your Main Battery is Flat, get a jump start if its safe or remove the battery and hook it up to a charger. Maybe you left your lights on, or your alternator isnt charging the battery properly when your driving around. Sometimes this can be the bushes located in the alternator.

2006 chevy colorado cranks over but wont start


2005 Colorado 4x4 stick shift – I had the same thing happen and it had to do with the passlock system – it will keep your truck from starting for approximately 10 minutes, yes you will have to wait and let it sit- if you try to start it will just turn over forever. On my truck the solution was to change my starting procedure, I now keep the truck in neutral-turn the key all the way for a few seconds and then push in the clutch- it starts every time. If you have an automatic I don’t know..

2003 chevy surb... can not release my spare tire...cable is broken ,,,nothing to pull on help !


If when you turn the crank nothing happens to drop the tire. Look up inside and see if the cable is loose (most likely not) if not the assembly is broken, you will have to cut the plate that holds tire up and replace the spare tire cable and crank assembly.
