You might need to use a tire iron or some sort of large tool to wedge it between the floor of the bed and the tire, they can get 'stuck' there after sitting up there for years-if the cranking mechanism is frozen you can try to spray it with some spray lubricant and let it soak, freeing it up.

Do the new Sierra 1500 trucks 2007-2010 have a full size spare tire?


Yes. The spare tire is located under the bed in the rear of the vehicle. You have to use the handle of the jack to lower it down. There is a place in the bumper next to the License plate that you stick the jack handle in to lower the tire down.

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:)

I cant get my spare tire down from my 2006 GMC Sierra. I think the mechanism might be stripped.


The spare tire support cable has an additional safety mechanism prevents the spare tire from falling onto the road should the cable break. This mechanism often gets filled up with road grit and won't release properly when you try and lower the spare. If your spare comes down a few inches then won't go any further then this is your problem. There should be some tin brackets included with your jack that are supposed to hold the spare tire up slightly off of the ground to allow some slack in the cable which usually [but not always] will allow the stuck mechanism to come loose. There is a more detailed description of this procedure in the owners manual. IF the spare won't move at all or the mechanism just won't release no matter what you do then you may have to have the entire spare support mechanism replaced.

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.

2006 GMC Sierra 1500 cant remove spare tire


The safety clamp is seized. It is on the cable just above the cups that hold the tire rim up. My mechanic had to torch the cable to get it off. If you can release the tension on the cable (support the spare while lowering the crank you may be able to get the clamp to release. If not, cut the cable above the clamp and you will still have enough cable length to bolt the cup back on. The owner's manual details this procedure. ( GM must know it does not release properly)
