Releasing the spare tire

How do you release the spare tire.  I don't see anywhere from the trunk area where to release the spare tire to replace a flat.  How do you unhook the spare from the frame of the car?

    I am having the same problem on my wife's 2001 Rodeo Sport. She has the under mounted full size spare and try as I may I can't find the release. Trust me, there have been times that we would have needed it!

If you look when you open the trunk right in the middle of the trunk there is a hole which your crank goes in to release the tire that is mounted under it, turn it either left or right to loosen

How do I get my spare from under mount?


You will need a socket and wrench. There is a metal cage taht holds the tire that is secured by a bolt or multiple bolts
The size depends on the model and manufacturer of the car

since you have a truck, what I would do is just saw it off, let the spare fall to ground, and just throw my spare tire in the back. Of course you can try to use wd40 to loosen the stuck mechanism. Little known fact: Brake fluid works best at loosening rust, just don\'t get it on any paint, as you can bet your bottom dollar the paint will be gone by morning.

How do i release the spare tire on my 2005 Kia Sedona


Hi, the spare tire is stored on the underside of the vehicle, under the right-side cargo door. The bolt is located in a recessed area that is protected by a small square plastic covering. To remove the spare tire, find and remove the bolt cover, then use your lug nut wrench to loosen the bolt holding the tire.
Remove the spare tire fastener's plastic cover, place the lug nut wrench onto the lug nut holding the tire onto the bolt, turn the wrench in a counter-clockwise direction until the tire is released and reaches the ground.

I cant get my 2002 trailblazer sparetire to release help


Even though the tire is beneath the car I believe the release is in the trunk. 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.

Where is the spare tire located in a 2000 Dodge Caravan


The Spare tire is under the Van between the Rear bumper and axle.
Check in the cargo area. There is a nut that lowers the spare tire on a cable hidden under a flap in the carpet.
If the tire does not come down all the way then the safety catch is stuck. The tire will come down a few inches and hang by the plastic t-bone holder. You'll need to get underneath the car and either reach over the tire or up in the center hole to release it. It is thinner than the main cable and hard to get at, but with some effort and good hard tug it will release.
It's a horrible design flaw.
After you finally get the spare tire off, you should either lubricate the release catch liberally or disable it completely so you're not stuck again.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Water in spare tire compartment of trunk after heavy rain.


U need to carefully check the seams of the sheetmetal for any sign of water or dirt from the road, there is no common leak on these cars, in fact they seldom leak anywhere, the water is most likely splash up from the road, unless u left something out like it was sitting when this water accumulated. Let me know that info.
