If you apply enough force to the bolt using aq big wrench, you can snap the bolt.(not super bad and can easily be replaced) Otherwise, spray it with a good solvent several times for a day or two and see if it helps.

Cant open trunk


Hi Kathleen lets try with a spare key to unlock trunk if that fails try with any key and a little WD 40. If none of these suggestions work then I'm gonna say that the rod that connects the key to the latch is disconnected or damaged. Gonna require pulling down rear seats using a flashlight, pulling down carpet that is in center of trunk above the latch and remove either 2 or 3 (amount)10 or 8mm (size)bolts that holds latch to inside of trunklid . Once removed the latch will stay on the lock hoop and the trunk should open. Afterwards you have to inspect the trunk lid to determine whether the clip that hold the rod is damaged and needs replacement. Good luck

Cant get the sparetire to come down on my 03 surburban


Those GM truck spare tire lifts can be a problem. There's a secondary catch to prevent the tire from accidently coming down. The problem seems to happen when corrosion sets in due to exposure to the elements. The secondary catch won't release. If you can lower the tire a little bit you should be able to reached up over top the spare tire and the lift. In the center is a bolt the holds the lift in place (I believe it has a 15 mm head). I removed the bolt and was able to lower the tire and lift assembly. It's easier to clean and lube the lift if it's on the ground. Check the spring at the end of the cable. If it's brocken you'll have to replace the lift.

How do i change the passenger side brake light


If you open your trunk and look on the inside next to the light being replaced, you should see three black protectors which probably appear to hold up the trunk carpeting interior. Remove these protectors and pull back the carpeting (held on by velcro attachments). You should now see three bolts with retaining nuts. Remove the nuts with a deep 10mm socket and pull the light from the body from the outside of the car. After the light is out, you will see three light sockets. The brake light should be the most inner light. Twist the socket towards the left and the light should easily come out. Remove the bulb and replace it with the exact same bulb. The bulb has two filaments, one for the park lights and the other for the brake lights.Install in reverse.

Releasing the spare tire


if you look when you open the trunk right in the middle of the trunk there is a hole which your crank goes in to release the tire that is mounted under it, turn it either left or right to loosen
