Can't fit retainer through the hole in the rim.

After I lower the spare time I cannot fit the metal retainer through the hub hole in the rim. Should I be able to detach the cable from the metal retainer?

You can't take the cable off the retainer.
after the tire is down you need to lift one side of the tire and put the retainer through the hole at an angle

How do you release spare tire on 1997 dodge grand caravan?


depends on where your spare is. if it is under the rear of the car then the lowering bolt is under the carpet in the luggage area. the wrench for the lug nuts also fits this bolt. turn to lower the spare tire to the ground, lift the spare by one end and reach in and point the plastic retainer straight up through the hole to get the tire off the cable. Instructions are on the inside of the plastic panel that covers the jack.

I can't get my tires off my 2000 Mercury Cougar?? Please help


If you've got all the lug nuts off yet can't get the rim to budge [aluminum rims] then what has happened is that the enter area of the aluminum rim has corroded itself onto the metal hub and is stuck there. These rims can be very difficult to remove when this happens which can make it almost impossible to change a flat tire on the road. I usually spray the center area of the rim [where it fits over the round center of the hub] with penetrating oil and let it soak for several minutes or more. Next, making certain that the vehicle is securely supported on jack stands, [safety first!] I hit on the inside of the tire with a dead blow type of hammer to jar the rim loose from the hub. Don't pound on the rim as you can easily damage an aluminum rim by doing so. If the tire isn't flat then the fastest way to get it off would be to reinstall and retighten the wheel nuts and go to a service facility and have them get them loose for you with the car up on a hoist. Should be fairly cheap to have this done. Once the rims are off then clean all the corrosion out of the center hole in the rim and off of the hub and apply a suitable type of anti-sieze compund to the mating surfaces so they'll be easier to remove the next time. Metal rims can stick on also but usually will come off by wiggling them side to side by hand. Good luck, hope this helps!

Need to access the spare tire on a 2000 ford explorer. IS there a special tool to lower the tire- how do I use it?


Yes, look under the hood in the front you will see a long rod looking thing held in with clips.Take this out and open the back of the explorer at the bottom center you see a hole facing the front of the car insert the rod and turn after it locks in. This will lower the spare.

How do you take off the spare tire from a Plymoth Voyager?


THERE SHOULD BE A HOLE IN THE REAR BUMPER THAT THE TIRE TOOL FITS IN. TURN THE CRANK-TOOL COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO LOWER THE SPARE TIRE. WHEN THE TIRE IS DOWN, LIFT THE TIRE ENOUGH TO SEND THE CABLE LONGWAYS THROUGH THE RIM. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK

Your rims are not properply seating on yje hubs.make sure yje center hole on the rim is fitting over the axle hubs. Check for chamfering of the inner edge of the rim hole so the radius on the hubs don't eep the wheel from fully seating.. After market rims are not generic fit. You risk losing a wheel going down the road if fit is not corrected.

1989 E-250 Front Wheel Problem


Spray some penatrating oil around the center of the wheel, and let it sit for a few min.With the tire off the ground, rap on the back side of the tire, on the edge of the rim, but be careful not to rap it to hard, as you might dent the rim.It won't hurt to grind a little bit, just enough to remove the rust. I do it all the time.Hope I could help out.

93 honda accord rotors


Your Accord has what is called "Trapped Rotors". They actually fit behind the hub. The procedure to remove them is not complicated, but it is time consuming.
Here is how I do it:
1) Remove axle retaining nut.
2) Remove brake caliper and bracket.
3) Remove lower ball joint retaining nut and use pickle fork to loosen spindle from lower ball joint.
4) Remove axle from hub.
5) On the back of the spindle, remove four bolts that attach hub/bearing to spindle.
6) Use slide hammer to remove rotor/hub assembly.
7) Remove 4 bolts attaching rotor to hub.
8) While it is a snug fit, the hub bearing does slide through center of rotor to remove it.
Installation is in reverse order.
A bad bearing usually makes a growling noise while driving.
