The catch at end of cable will not go thru tire hole in center of spare on 2007 silverado 3500


Cut the cable and remove the wheel from under the truck

All trucks have spare wheels under them,the lowering
mech rusts,you can't get then down,the wheels are junk
with rusted out mounting holes

With a pick-up or suv you need to put the wheel
inside veh,in box or leave at home.

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.

    How do i get the spare tire to come down


    If the spare tire does not lower to the ground,the secondary latch is engaged
    causing the tire not to lower Your vehicle has an underbody-mounted tire hoist
    assembly equipped with a secondary latch system.It is designed to stop the spare
    tire from suddenly falling off your vehicle if the cable holding the spare tire
    is damaged.For the secondary latch to work,the tire must be stored with the
    valve stem pointing up.
    1.Check under the vehicle to see if the cable is visible.If it is not visible
    proceed to Step 6.
    2.If visible,first try to tighten the cable by turning the wheel wrench clockwise
    until you hear two clicks or feel it skip twice.You cannot overtighten the cable.
    3.Loosen the cable by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise three or four turns.
    4.Repeat this procedure at least two times.If the spare tire lowers to the ground
    continue with Step 2 of removing the Spare.
    5.Turn the wrench counterclockwise until approximately 6 inches (15 cm) of cable is
    exposed.
    6.Attach the jack handle,extension and the wheel wrench to the jack and place it under
    the vehicle towards the front of the rear bumper.Position the center lift point of the
    jack under the center of the spare tire.
    7.Turn the wrench clockwise to raise the jack until it lifts the end fitting.
    8.Continue raising the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is held firmly
    in place.
    9.Lower the jack by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise.Keep lowering the jack
    until the spare tire slides off the jack or is hanging by the cable.
    10.Disconnect the jack handle from the jack and carefully remove the jack.Use one hand
    to push against the spare while firmly pulling the jack out from under the spare tire
    with the other hand.

    Owners manual has been stolen :( need to locate the spare tire! HELP!!!


    The spare tire will be under your car. Along with the jack and tire iron, there should be a rod that you slide into a hole on the top of your bumper with the hatch open. This rod lowers your spare tire from under your car

    Trying to get the spare tire off of my pick up truck


    Hello, when you go to let it down can you turn the rod that you are useing to let the tire down? If not then the cable or gear box is rusted solid. That is what usually happens because of the location and lack of use. If it doesn't turn you will have to cut the cable or cradle that holds the tire up. If the rod does turn your spare tire carrier might have a safety catch. The catch can usually be released by putting a jack under the spare tire rim and raising it up. While your doing that turn the rod to crank up the tire. That should release the saftey catch and allow the tire to be lowered down.

    Hoist to lower spare tire does not work.


    Same thing happened to me on my 2002 trailblazer. The last few wraps of the cable was corroded to the point that it wouldn't unwind with the tool supplied. First thing to do is cut the crimped end of the cable off with a grinder or cut off wheel but don't forget to support the spare. This will get the spare out of your way then simply take out the 3 mounting bolts for the cable hoist. At this point you could buy a new cable hoist from the dealer and install it yourself or you might be able to do what I did. I managed to pull and remove about a foot of the rusted cable, slide the rectangular metal piece, that actually holds the spare at the center of the wheel, back on the cable and attach a 1/4" cable clamp to the end of the cable which of course must be in good condition. There should still be enough cable to re-attach your spare to it and hoist it back up. Don't forget to lube things up so it won't happen again. Good luck. (buying a new one sounds better, doesn't it?)

    WHAT IS THE NAME FOR THE CABLE THAT HOLDS THE SPARE TIRE UNDER TH


    your post was cut short, but cable that holds the spare in place is what I think u were asking, and that would be what u call it, 'the cable that secures the spare tire, or lowers the spare tire'
