What is the proper name for the tool you place through your bummper of my van to release the spare wheel. I need to get one. A guy told me it was a spare wheel carrier but I don't think that's it. Thank.

It is the crank handle for the spare tire. Yours should be under the hood-you will see some clips on top of the radiator shroud. Part of it goes across the top and the balance goes parallel to the fender.
Should be some in Salvage yards real cheap.

It sounds as if your pump pressure is quite low. there is enough pressure for the trans to work with absolutely no load on it, but not enough for it to work properly.

How do I remove spare wheel from bipper van


Find the release bolt from underneath, measure the bolt position relative to edges or some other defined point that you can follow through the same points/edges to the top (you may have to estimate a little) and work out where to drill or remove the ply to reveal the release.

My honda odyssey touring does not have a spare tire. We bought this as a brand new car. The first time i had a flat tire we checked everywhere in the car even with AAA service help and we were not able to...


2005 Honda Odyssey TOURING models originally came with Michelin PAX run-flats and eliminated the traditional dough-nut spare. If your van no longer has run-flats (look at the tire size) then your van has already been De-PAX'd...count your lucky stars because PAX tires run about 300 a tire plus!!! If you have been De-PAX'd then you will need a donut spare (T135/80D17) this goes into the spare tire space located behind the 3rd row of seats. this Site has everything you will need for the spare http://www.hondapartworld.com/1534_SPARE-SHJ

How to remove tire from under the van


There is a compartment inside the rear hatch (sometimes on the driver's side and sometimes on the Passenger side) that you can open and your tire changing equipment and instructions will be in there. (unless someone removed it) The jack handle must be used to "crank" the winch to let down the cable that holds the spare tire in place.

I need to know how to get the spare tire from under the Uplander. I am second owner and have no manual for my van. Please help me.


Do you have the original jack and related tools I hope? The jack is located in the rear passenger side access panel at the back of your van. The jack and related tools are in a black bag wrapped around the jack and the whole thing is attached to the inside wall. In the bag, you have two tools. One is a wrench with the flip out socket at the end that you use to remove the lug nuts to your wheels. The other tool is a rod. The rod on one end has a hex bolt that fits your lug nut tool and the other end is a flat tip screwdriver. With the rear left gate open, you can look along the top of your bumper surface just under the rubber seal and to left of the gate lock pin by a few inches you will see a hole. This is where the flat tip screwdriver tool is inserted. Insert into the hole and rotate the rod to engage the slotted tip in the hole. With your lug nut wrench, attach it to the hex head end so you can turn it. Turning it counter clockwise while holding into the hole will lower your spare wheel to the ground. You then have to flex the wheel support on the end of the cable sideways to fit through the hub of the wheel to get the spare out. I think this mount is for just the spare and stock hub cap wheels. If you have custom wheels, you will have to carry the flat inside the vehicle to get it to a garage to fix it. To dive off, make sure you turn the crank tool clockwise to recoil your cable so it is not on the ground. The same is true when you Put your spare back. To put it back on, lower the cable, insert the support through the hub of the wheel and ensure it grabs the hub so the wheel does not fall off. Crank the cable clockwise to raise the wheel. It will get hard to turn when the wheel is all the way up. The space saver spare is stored under the vehicle with the air stem pointed down so you can air it up without having to take it off the vehicle. (60PSI)

I hope this is enough detail and that you have all the equipment. Also, Caution, I learned the hard way that the original jack is not very strong. If possible, be on a level surface when using it with no one getting in and out of the vehicle. Mine failed due to being on slight hill with kids getting in and out.

I hope this helps.

My VW T5 camper van does not come with a spare wheel. There appears to be a space underneath the rear of the vehicle designed to take a spare wheel. If this is correct then can I get one fitted and would...


t5 originally had a spare wheel underneath but some conversion companies remove it to fit waste water/sewerage tanks etc,you will need to put car on ramp and see if you have enough space,or do whatever the rest of us do and put it on the front(makes a good deer ram...)

Spare tire removal from underneath van cant seem to get the tire from the bracket is there a specail way to remove it


What's happening is that the latch is not releasing - a safety feature so the tire doesn't drop down onto the road should the cable or assembly rust/break etc. While researching I got this info from another forum: Jack up the rear of the van. Wind the spare "up". now put your jack under the spare to support its weight. Then "unwind" it. now look up through the spare to the winch assembly. You'll see a latch at the back - towards the rear of the van. Reach in with a long screwdriver and release it by moving it towards the rear of the van. If you've unwound the winch you should be able to move the plastic holder downwards. Once you've done this you can allow the tire to come down and remove it. Now remove the winch assembly - 5 or 6 bolts. Odds are you'll see apiece of wire hanging or it may have fallen out. You'll also see a spring clip - it clips onto the underside so when you unwind the winch it should pull the aforementioned latch to release the tire. You should be able to get this back in place by fiddling with it, or just attach a wire to the latch to work it manually. Or buy a new winch assembly - approx. $150. Good luck

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.
