What do I do if the spare tire assembly won't fully retract on a 2005 T&C

It's probably pretty badly rusted. Put the spare in the rear of the car, and wire the cable up to something so it won't drag until you can work on it.

When you can, spray a huge amount of WD40 into the mechanism. Repeat several times. Work the mechanism back & forth again & again with its crank handle - you might get lucky, it might free up. If not... you'll just have to carry the spare inside the car unless you're willing to replace the spare carrier mechanism.

How to put a spare tire back under 2001 Toyota Tacoma

my truck is a 92 tacoma and 01 tundra but they both are similar. unwind the cable by the back bumper there is a slot that the part of the jack handle is slipped into the the crank to lower or lift the spare tire. Sometimes u might have to lower and pull the plate down due to dirt, mud or whatever that might be holing it up. slide the tire under the truck and position the plplate in the middle of the rim. Crank it back up making sure that it is centered and secure to the bottom of the frame.

Does anyone know where I can find the undermounted spare tire harness ? I have searched all over and it seems that the tailgate harness is available yet I cant locate the undermounted harness. Please...

Your spare tire is attached usin a cable system under the rear center of the truck. When you open the liftgate, in the center bottom there is a plastic panel with a bolt in the center near the liftgate door jamb lock mechanism. Use your tire lug nut tool to loosen (turn counterclockwise) this bolt and it will loosen the cable system dropping your spare to the ground. Dont forget to tighten the cable back up raising the retainer back to its original position after using the spare. When you get your flat tire fixed, you can drop the cable again and put your spare back under the truck......Mike

Change front tire on 97 honda accord SE

1. Put vehicle in park or in gear if a standard with the emergency brake on I would also put something behind the rear wheel.
2. With your spare tire there should be a tool to remove the nuts holding your tire on, grab that and crack all of the nuts loose, don't remove them yet just start them.
3. Take your jack out (should be with spare tire also) and set it up under your control arm on a flat spot. If not comfortable putting it there put it on the pinch weld (behind tire on frame of car under the door) and jack until the tire comes off the ground.
4. All your nuts are started so now you can remove them and install your spare tire.
5. Tighten nuts as tight as you can
6. Lower vehicle back down and retighten nuts again to make sure they are tight.
7. Take it to a shop, get tire repaired or replaced and have them install it back on for you.

Good Luck

How do you take off the spare tire from a 2004 escalde

The jack handle fits though a hole in the rear bumper and you turn it and a cable lets the tire lower to the ground. Most cars and trucks with this tire mounted under the rear of the car use this way to hold the tire up until needed, The foot on the end of the cable can be sid stepped and the foot pull though and the tire is free to be put on the car, Many aftermarket wheels won't fit on the foot on the end of the cable and you'll have to put the flat in the car to get it to the service center and then the spare can go up in there and the shop will likly put the spare back where it belongs for the event that you need the spare again.

Where is the battery located on a 2006 chevy hhr

NO it is NOT under the hood or the fender IT IS in the back under the plastic cover that covers the spare tire. Open your tailgate, lift the cover that hides your spare tire. The battery is between the spare tire and the back bumper. If the battery is dead you can not open the tailgate, You need to open the side door and climb into the back. Who ever thought about putting the battery back there and having an electric tailgate is a nut! Good work GM

Owners manual has been stolen :( need to locate the spare tire! HELP!!!

The spare tire will be under your car. Along with the jack and tire iron, there should be a rod that you slide into a hole on the top of your bumper with the hatch open. This rod lowers your spare tire from under your car

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.

your post was cut short, but cable that holds the spare in place is what I think u were asking, and that would be what u call it, 'the cable that secures the spare tire, or lowers the spare tire'
