Idk how to bring down my spare tire on my 1996 jeep grand Cherokee


if you have a winch type spare tyre arrangement the it is held in place by a chain on a winch spindle. IT is locked in place by a clutch that you activate when you wind up the tyre until it is tight. To undo the clutch and lower the tyre simply turn the crank handle as it letting it down. Overcome the initial tightness and then it will lower as you turn the handle.

How do I get the rear spindle off so I can replace the emergency brake shoes on my 2006 chrysler pacifica?



Adjustment

  1. Place parking brake lever in -full released- position.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Remove plug in parking brake shoe support to access adjuster star-wheel.
  4. Through the access hole, rotate the adjuster star wheel in the following direction to expand the shoes outward against the drum:
    1. Left brake - Rotate star-wheel toward rear of vehicle.
    2. Right brake - Rotate star-wheel toward front of vehicle.
  5. Using an appropriate tool, turn adjuster star wheel until wheel will not rotate (dead lock).
  6. Back off adjuster six detents (teeth).
  7. Rotate wheel, checking for light drag. If drag is too heavy, continue to back off adjuster one detent at a time until light drag is present. Do not back off star-wheel more than 17 detents from wheel lock.
  8. Install access plug.
  9. Adjust opposite wheel parking brake shoes using same method.
  10. Lower vehicle.
  11. Apply and release parking brake lever once to ensure proper operation of parking brakes.


Removal & Installation NOTE The following procedure may be used to remove shoes on either side of the vehicle.

  1. Lock out automatic adjuster in parking brake lever.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Access and remove rear hub and bearing.
  4. Remove parking brake cable bolt at knuckle.
  5. Completely back off parking brake shoe adjustment.
  6. Remove parking brake shoe adjuster spring.
  7. Remove shoe adjuster.

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.

    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:

    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.
