I would not cut the cable lift. See if there is a way that you can unbolt it so you can un bind the cable. If the tire does not move at all, you might not be catching the knob in the bumper. I would try using the square end. Push it in while SLOWLY turning it to make sure you catch it. Some times you might have to tighten it before you can loosen the tire.

The catch at end of cable will not go thru tire hole in center of spare on 2007 silverado 3500


Cut the cable and remove the wheel from under the truck

All trucks have spare wheels under them,the lowering
mech rusts,you can't get then down,the wheels are junk
with rusted out mounting holes

With a pick-up or suv you need to put the wheel
inside veh,in box or leave at home.

2007 cad SRX right rear has flat tire 255 60R17 can I use the spare tire? Is it a full size spare tire?


If the vehicle came with a spare tire then yes you can use it. As to whether or not it is a full size spare tire I wouldn't be able to answer that, as on some models a full sized spare is an option and I have no way of knowing if that option was purchased or not.

Removing the spare tire from a 2005 Chev Silverado


These can be very difficult to deal with. What I've found is that the safety catch gets filled with grit and won't release properly. We usually support the tire with blocks so the weight of the tire is not on the cable and then you can, sometimes, reach up and work the safety catch enough to get it to disengage...But I have seen them so stuck that we've had to cut the secondary lock off which means you have to replace it if you want your spare back under the chassis again. I see the most problems with these in gravel and dirt road areas or areas that use lots of salt and sand in the winter.

The cable for the spare tire on my 2006 1500 works fine (it's all the way down) but the retainer did not lower at all so I cannot pick up the spare tire. Can anyone help? Thanks


  1. Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable (1) is exposed.
  2. While holding the latch pin (3), fully depress the latch button (2) and release the secondary latch from the hoist assembly. Some side-to-side and/or up-and-down movement may be necessary to disengage the latch mechanism.
  3. Continue rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the hoist the rest of the way.
  4. If this does not release the secondary latch, the spare tire hoist will need to be replaced. See the following procedure.
Important: If the spare tire hoist has been fully raised without a spare tire in place, the secondary latch mechanism may have become engaged. If this has occurred the hoist will not lower and the following steps will need to be followed:

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.
