This unfortunately is a common problem, you will have to cut the cable and replace the tire winch, luckily they are cheap.

SOURCE: replacing spare tire winch 2004 chev trailblazer

I have a '02 TrailBlazer and I had the same problem. When I got a flat and went to change the tire on the side of the road I was not able to get the tire off the winch. Luckly, I have AAA and the driver knew the trick to getting the tire free. The process involved lowering the tire as far as it would go and then kicking it. Wind back up and repeat until the winch free's itself.

When I took the car into the shop to get the tire fixed and the have the spare put back on the car, they were not able to get the winch free enough to put the tire back on. They said that is is a common problem with this mechanism and suggested replacing the winch system (estmated parts and labor $215). From what I can tell the winch accumulates rust up in the cable and locks up.

SOURCE: water leakage in spare tire compartment

aging foam seal around the tail light assembly is probably the issue. To check for sure, remove the trunk's cloth liner, get inside the trunk with a flashlight and have another person methodically spray the trunk area from bottom to up onto the backglass area last. Look for water entering and seal body seams, replace foam seals, etc as detected by your water test.

Spare tire does not drop down, comes loose and turns but does not drop down, CABLE IS FREE


I suspect a problem with the winch itself not realeasing the tire down.. If this is so, I believe the spare tire needs to be cut from the cable in order to replace the winch.

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

How do I lower the spare tire on a 2002 4runner


Find your tire changing tools. Take the tool with the hook on the end and attach the longer tool to it. Find the oblong shaped hole on the back bumper. The hook end will go in here and connectt to the spare tire winch. A flashlight aimed through the hole will help lining it up. Attach the lug wrench to the end of the hook tool. Rotate counter clockwise until the wheel is down. Remove the part going through the center of the tire and remove the tire.
