SOURCE: How to remove the spare tire on 2001 Chevy Blazer

if the vehicles spare is located under the rear cargo area then there may be a hole located in the rear bumper next to the license plate. if the vehicle is equipped like that then there should be a few straight bars that attach together to form a long bar. this bar is then inserted into this hole and mated with a joint witch is connected to a pully system that raises and lowers the tire. if this didnt make any sense or if it is totally wrong then you could consult the owners manual. all of the necessary procedures are in that book.

If the tire does not lower with the jack parts from the access door then you will have to put the jack up under the presseurerelease in the middle of the tire till it releases.

SOURCE: how do you remove the spare tire from a 2006 chevy

To remove the spare you need to access tools stored in the back of the vehicle, passenger side storage area. Open llftgate, remove net (if equipped), lift tab and remove cover to tool storage. Attach folding wrench to extension, insert 'chisel' end on an angle through the hole in the rear bumper and into the hoist shaft. Turn wrench counter-clockwise to lower spare enough so you can pull it from beneath the van to detach. Good luck!

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:)

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.

  • 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.

    The cable for the spare tire on my 2006 1500 works fine (it's all the way down) but the retainer did not lower at all so I cannot pick up the spare tire. Can anyone help? Thanks


    1. Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable (1) is exposed.
    2. While holding the latch pin (3), fully depress the latch button (2) and release the secondary latch from the hoist assembly. Some side-to-side and/or up-and-down movement may be necessary to disengage the latch mechanism.
    3. Continue rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the hoist the rest of the way.
    4. If this does not release the secondary latch, the spare tire hoist will need to be replaced. See the following procedure.
    Important: If the spare tire hoist has been fully raised without a spare tire in place, the secondary latch mechanism may have become engaged. If this has occurred the hoist will not lower and the following steps will need to be followed:

    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

    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.

    8.Continue raising the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is held firmly
    in place.

    until the spare tire slides off the jack or is hanging by the cable.

    I cannot get the spare to come loose. The


    Are you talking about after the spare is down on ground after lowering it or trying to lower it onto ground...??
    I have used my spare about 5 times in the last few months..I know that trying to lower it, you have to make sure you hook up correctly with correct end inside shaft tube (very tricky)...
    If you are talking about getting spare unhooked from latch, let plenty of slack in line then pull tire out some and lift up and squeeze spring loaded latches to get through opening of tire..
    Hope this helps some...
