If when you turn the crank nothing happens to drop the tire. Look up inside and see if the cable is loose (most likely not) if not the assembly is broken, you will have to cut the plate that holds tire up and replace the spare tire cable and crank assembly.

Spare tire cable will not come down.


As there is no tire on it pulling down, you might need someone to pull down on the cable while you crank it down. The cables can get a memory to them where they will not come down without weight on them.

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.

I can't get the spare tire out of the rack? 2004 yukon


  • Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the spare tire to the ground. Continue to rotate the shaft until the spare tire can be pulled out from under the vehicle and removed. If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower.
  • If the secondary latch is engaged and the cable end is visible, perform the following procedure: 3.1. Tighten the cable by rotating the hoist shaft clockwise until you hear 2 clicks or feel it skip twice. You cannot overtighten the cable. 3.2. Loosen the cable by rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns. 3.3. If the spare tire can be lowered, repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if the spare tire can be removed. 3.4. If the spare tire cannot be lowered, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable is exposed. 3.5. Raise and support the vehicle. 3.6. Place a transmission jack, or equivalent, under the spare tire. 3.7. Position the center of the transmission jack under the secondary latch release button at the center of the spare tire. Arrange the arms of the transmission jack so they will support the tire after it has been released. 3.8. Raise the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is firmly held in place, releasing the secondary latch. 3.9. Lower the tire. If the spare tire is hanging by the cable, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until the tire is low enough to remove.

    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!

    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.

    Chevy pick-up spare tire hoist won't release


    Sugerinimo's idea is good but I good not get it too work.. Well, this can be easier or a bit harder. Mine was harder. You are stuck on the secondary tire lock. There is a process in your manual that involves lowering the tire as far as it goes with the secondary lock, then placing your tire jack under the center of the tire holder and jack it back up until its tight to the frame - this should release the secondary lock. In my case this did not work. Plan B, is grab a 15 mm socket, small extension and ratchet. Lower the tire as far as it goes. Locate the 15mm bolt that attaches the tire hanger to the frame, undo the bolt, the hanger is then swinging from the back, lift up the tire and bracket and it will fall off. be careful the tire is heavy.
    Next on the top of the tire you will see a rubber cover the secondary lock slides into. Pull down the boot. You will see two holes along the bottom on the opposite side to the crank. Turn the bottom part of the lock. If you look in the holes you can see where the catch is. Take a slot screw driver and hammer, line up the catch and tap it back in.
    The secondary lock is now free.
    Remember when reinstalling the bolt on the frame to use some locktite.

    Cant get the spare tire released from the hoist cable? Help


    If like mine. Let tire down on ground.

    Lift edge of tire up to take pressure off cable.and reach in under and turn cross piece parallel to cable.

    Then will come out up through the center of wheel.

    Just the reverse to put spare back up to storage position.

    2002 Kia sportage spare tire swing arm won't release?


    The cable on the KIa is outside near the sapre tire and gets rusted and corroded easily. Also there is a nut which holds the cable securely in a holder so that when you pull on the cable the inside and not the outside of the cable moves. Use WD-40 on the cable, make sure that the cable is secure in the holder and tighten the nut that holds the cable to the frame - the nut is located just below the pull handle, on the outside of the cable itself.
