You need to lube the cable mecinism and you need the rod to let the tire down.

You need to write down your VIN number, located on the front dash on the drivers side almost where it meets the windshield, and go to a dealership and they will order you a new locking lug nut adapter.

I cant get my spare tire down from my 2006 GMC Sierra. I think the mechanism might be stripped.


The spare tire support cable has an additional safety mechanism prevents the spare tire from falling onto the road should the cable break. This mechanism often gets filled up with road grit and won't release properly when you try and lower the spare. If your spare comes down a few inches then won't go any further then this is your problem. There should be some tin brackets included with your jack that are supposed to hold the spare tire up slightly off of the ground to allow some slack in the cable which usually [but not always] will allow the stuck mechanism to come loose. There is a more detailed description of this procedure in the owners manual. IF the spare won't move at all or the mechanism just won't release no matter what you do then you may have to have the entire spare support mechanism replaced.

Spare tire removal 2003 gmc sierra how to release secondary latch? owners manual is no help. cable comes down spare comes down about 3 inchs thats all


You must unwind (counter clockwise) with the tire tools that come with the truck, sometimes the cable gets jammed on the spool it may take 2 people to get it loose,one must pull down on the spare while the other unwinds it. Try not to get under the tire as it is heavy.

2003 Lincoln LS has steering shimmy at 70 mph


It's either:
  1. Out of alignment or
  2. Front tires are not properly balanced.
Either way you should have it repaired by a mechanic soon. Your destroying your tires and can cause front end damage.
HINT: Have the tires Dynamic balanced, not Static balanced. It cost a few dollars extra, but saves you twice as much in reduced tire wear.

Front end and steering wheel shakes


Most common problem would be tires are out a balance. Or, the tires are out of round ( meaning the tires have a hop to it; not completely round ).

2003 gmc yukon won't move when i put in drive or reverse


Hello. If you havent already done so check your transmission fluid with the car ideling. If its not moving it definatly sounds like a transmission problem. The tire should have nothing to do with this unless you put huge mud tires on it without properly adjusting gear ratio. That could possibly fry the transmission, but the difference in size would have to be pretty big compared to the old tires.

2006 GMC Sierra 1500 cant remove spare tire


The safety clamp is seized. It is on the cable just above the cups that hold the tire rim up. My mechanic had to torch the cable to get it off. If you can release the tension on the cable (support the spare while lowering the crank you may be able to get the clamp to release. If not, cut the cable above the clamp and you will still have enough cable length to bolt the cup back on. The owner's manual details this procedure. ( GM must know it does not release properly)
