The cable holding my spare tire broke on my 2003 caravan. Can it be fixed easily.


the bracket that has the cable inside of it is easy to replace, you can pick one up at your local junkyard, the jack rod that slides into it comes off with most of them and there's only a couple of bolts holding it on.

Where is my spare tire in gmc jimmy slt 1999


Under the back of the vehicle. If it is not there than one ofe two things happened. The wire that holds the spare tire in place broke and the tire fell out from under the vehicle. There ws not one there when you purchased the vehicle. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

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.

Car makes noise at the back of the car when i take off like a knocking noise kids say they can fell it when they sit in third row set


Check the spare tire. Sometimes the cable that holds the spare in place loosens and allows the tire to bang around.

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.

    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 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.

    Spare tire fell off undercarrage and I need to fix the cable that holds it


    There is 3 or 4 bolts that hold the cable assy to the vehicle. You cannot replace just the cable. It has to be replaced as an assy. They are very easy to replace. Good luck. Hope this helps.
