Cant get the sparetire to come down on my 03 surburban


Those GM truck spare tire lifts can be a problem. There's a secondary catch to prevent the tire from accidently coming down. The problem seems to happen when corrosion sets in due to exposure to the elements. The secondary catch won't release. If you can lower the tire a little bit you should be able to reached up over top the spare tire and the lift. In the center is a bolt the holds the lift in place (I believe it has a 15 mm head). I removed the bolt and was able to lower the tire and lift assembly. It's easier to clean and lube the lift if it's on the ground. Check the spring at the end of the cable. If it's brocken you'll have to replace the lift.

Where do i find the location of the spare tire jack for my 2001 Suburban?


in my burb, the jack and all the components are in a compartment located between the 3rd row seat cupholder and the mesh/container compartment. it's kind of deep and it has a small indednt for a handle, lift that and it should pop right out, then you can undo the nut to release the jack and wheel chokes. then follow konkomados's steps to lower your spare at the back

How do I remove the spare tire on my 2001 chevy surburban?


Typically all Suburban spare tires are mounted on an under-car carrier. This carrier is usually accessed through a covered key way at the rear bumper near the license plate step. The jack that comes with the Suburban also has a crank rod that is used to raise and lower the jack. The other end of the rod is designed to access the key way to crank the spare tire lift up or down. Cranking the lift in a counterclockwise rotation will lower the spare tire.

I hope this helps:)

The lock on the spare tire rack of my 2006 Chevy Silverado is screwed up - how do I remove it? Will the rack function without it? If not, what replacement parts are available?


Easiest and Cheapest fix is to torch it or hacksaw it unable the spare tire is free! Then put your tire in the back or your truck! There are tire carriers designed for your bed! Check out LMC trucks it's where I found out about it... I've already moved my tire to the bed just to elminate this extremely common problem with using the factory tire carrier under the truck... Think about it... Where does all the snow and water go on your truck? Under the truck, right? So aviod using the facotry location at all cost or it will cost you... Someday...

I have a flat, how do I get the spare tire down?


in the boot/trunk at the rear of the boot area under the carpet will be a bolt head, usually a 17 mm , which is connected to a hook that hold the spare wheel carrier up.
unwind this bolt and the carrier will begin to lower. once you have unwound it a bit, look underneath the vehicle and the wheel will be lower, you can usually lift the rack up and unhook the bolt to lower the rack to slide the spare out. do the reverse when replacing the wheel

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.

    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.
