Where is the jack on a 2001 jimmy

It should be in the cargo floor area, close to the tailgate. Either lift the carpet and/or look for a compartment door. Or is there a panel on the side of the cargo area. The handle to crank the spare up and down, is there too. If you have a space saver spare, its all going to be together under the carpet. Some vehicles place the jack under the back seat.

If you bought it used, a previous owner may have removed the jack. Hope this helps.

I was trying to get my spare tire out of my gmc sierra 2500 hd and the cable came down but not the tire help me what do i do

Hi, the spare jack on these vehicles work great, to hold the wheel up, but as you can see they are not too user friendly, when the wheel needs to come down.the pring loaded latch has a safety hook, that should release when the wheel is cranked down. this hook has a tendancy to hang up, and only allows the wheel to come down about 1/4 inch. try to tighten the spare back up, and over tighten it a little, this may release the hook. If not, try it a few more times. If you have to, try to hold the wheel up a bit, and see if it will loosen. If after all of this, it will not release, the cable may have to be cut, and the jack replaced. Good

How do you lower a spare tire on a 2002 envoy?

Never tried it but found this on the internet:
If you have turned the crank to lower the tire and nothing happens STOP. I did this and borke the plastic that covers the coil of wire! Get out another jack and jack up the center of the spare. It has a safety on it that will lock the spare in the event of a cord failure. Jacking up the center of the spare tire will release it. Just make sure your no where near it if it falls off the jack. Good luck I hope this helps. Oh and if this doesn't work right away STOP JACKING IT UP!!!!

Unloading spare tire 2005 trailblazer

After you open the rear hatch look on the sill of the frame on the right hand side of the truck. You must insert the Jack crank into the hole and turn it counter clockwise to release the holder and the tire will tilt down from underneath. If it does not release then you may have to pull it down as the mechanism has been known to seize. After you open the rear hatch look on the sill of the frame on the right hand side of the truck.

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.

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.

How do you release the spare tire underneath the truck?

The spare is held in place by a cable that is cranked up and down with a tool that is stored with the jack, the access hole for the tool to crank the spare down is in the rear bumper in most trucks, look underneath to see it and be sure.

Spare Tire

I had the same problem, but finally figured it out.
Open the back door, and look for a hole dead center, you'll see the crank plug that holds the tire up.
Using the jack crank put it through the hole into it and go counterclockwise. You should soon notice the tire beginning to lower. It seems pretty lame, but at least you don't have to hold the spare up with a jack and undo a bolt, which I have had to do on past vehicles.
