This may sound funny but unwind the cable to the ground lie on your back and kick the spare tire until you free it.

SOURCE: How do I release the spare tire from under my van? 94 Dodge Caravan

It is underneath the van at the back. Open the rear hatch door and look for a little piece of carpet cut in a square on the right side. Lift that and there should be a bolt there that you can turn with the tire wrench. That will lower the tire.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Release the spare tire?

The spare tyre is on a cradle under the rear of the car. the long crank handle is clipped onto the underside of carpeted boot floor board. The crank handle goes into the hole just above the bumper in the centre of the rear bumper, then wind down the chain and support to release the spare wheel.

The ranch hand bumper has covered the hole to release the spare tire. Any ideas?


Could you cut the cable that hold the spare tire up? Expensive, but????. Take it to a welding shop, and let them cut a hole in it with a cutting torch.

How do i change a tire on a 1988 ford f-150


Before doing anything make sure you have air in your spare..,A good Jack and spare tire removal kit....The kit should be under or behind the passenger seat..I don't like the factory Jack it comes with because sometimes you need a good strong block of wood to achieve the height you need to contact the vehicle..and sometimes they don't work correctly...Some spare tire release tools are under the hood..It is a long skinny rod ...You have to use rod or rod kit to stick through the rear bumper at the slot and turn the rod counterclockwise after you feel the rod connect with the release mechanism..,Lower the spare until it touches the ground then keep turning so you can have enough slack to remove cable from spare tire...Set parking brake while in park and use the lug nut removal tool to break loose the lug nuts before raising vehicle..They are removed counter clockwise..Don't take nuts off just break them loose...Block front wheels for safety with anything solid you can find if you are stranded..If you can't find anything rely on parking brake..It should be safe in park but safety first....Jack vehicle up..,remove all lug nuts put them in a safe clean place don't lose them..Remove flat tire..Install spare..Start each lug nut and tighten them all tight by hand..Snug each nut clockwise in a star pattern ..Get them good and tight but don't try to hurt yourself or break the stud...Lower vehicle,remove Jack..Snug each lug nut once again for safety..Put flat in truck bed for now rather than back in the spare storage area because it has to be repaired..Crank spare cable that held spare under truck clockwise until it stops.Remove tool..,Gather all tools used., remove blocks from front tires.,Head to a tire store...

I cant get the spare out from underneath. there


Check your Owners Manual for the location of the Spare Tire Release. Either underneath the carpet, or behind a cover: there should be a Nut shaped Spare Tire Release that you have to turn (should be counterclockwise) which turns the cable mechanism, which will lower the spare tire. Once the cable has been fully extended, pull the spare tire out from underneath the vehicle. Move the tire slightly back "up" onto the cable and turn the "cap" so you can fit the cap back through the hole in the middle of the tire.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

My spare tire is gone. I don't know if the cable broke or was cut. Is there a better replacement system for holding up the spare tire than just replacing the current system?


the cable is sufficient to hold the weight of the tire. Someone probably cut yours and took your tire.Aside from putting the spare tire in the hatchback there really isnt another option. They make locks for the hole in the bumper, however that wont stop someone with bolt cutters from cutting the cable.

The older model fords had a metal plate that would drop down and you set the tire on it and then pushed it back up and you could put a padlock on it. IT may be too expensive to modify than to just replace your tire.

How do i release the spare tire fom underneeth the car?


Their is a hole in the pannel below the tailgate you put the bar from the jack into it their is a chain holding up the spare wheel when you turn the bar the spare wheel lowers on the chain to the ground. Depending on the year of your Rodeo the bar may go under the pannel and not through a hole so check underneath behind the spare wheel and you will see how to turn it.

Spare tire


I have an Infinit QX56 and it uses the same tool to release the spare from under the rear of the SUV/lift gate. All you need to do is open the storage compartment in the rear hatch and get out the lug wrench bag out that has the tools. There is a long tool that looks like a bar with a "T" at the end. This will go into a hole in the rear bumper under the hatch. Then attach the extention tool and finaly lug wrench to the end with the hole in it. Rotate until you feel it catch, then rotate counter clockwise to lower the tire. Once it hits the floor, release a bit more tension so you can manuver the chain and holder out from the center of the rim. Lastly do these steps in reverse (rotate clockwise) to put the tire back under. Hope this helps!

Where is the spare tire located in a 2000 Dodge Caravan


The Spare tire is under the Van between the Rear bumper and axle.
Check in the cargo area. There is a nut that lowers the spare tire on a cable hidden under a flap in the carpet.
If the tire does not come down all the way then the safety catch is stuck. The tire will come down a few inches and hang by the plastic t-bone holder. You'll need to get underneath the car and either reach over the tire or up in the center hole to release it. It is thinner than the main cable and hard to get at, but with some effort and good hard tug it will release.
It's a horrible design flaw.
After you finally get the spare tire off, you should either lubricate the release catch liberally or disable it completely so you're not stuck again.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Spare Tire


I had the same problem, but finally figured it out.
Open the back door, and look for a hole dead center, you'll see the crank plug that holds the tire up.
Using the jack crank put it through the hole into it and go counterclockwise. You should soon notice the tire beginning to lower. It seems pretty lame, but at least you don't have to hold the spare up with a jack and undo a bolt, which I have had to do on past vehicles.

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
