    You need to open the back door and at the bottom you will see a small oval slot with an arrow. In the compartment where the jack is there should be a long handle with a square end that goes in the slot. You have to move it around until it seats and just wind it down.

We have a 2004 Chevy avalanche, we need to get the spare tire down. the lock on the right side of the license plate won't do anything. What do we do?


I can't see anything from here. Do you have an owners manual, if so, look up info for removing spare tire. I looked at your owners manual, It didn't say anything about a lock, so I don't know? If you don't have an owners manual, I can help with that.
I don't like spark tires under the vehicle, the first chance I got, I'd put the spare tire in back of vehicle, easy to get at.
If this was my vehicle, I'd get that spare tire down, one way or the other. Just my opinion.
I realize that isn't the answer you wanted and I apologize. I'd have to look at it.

You will need to cut the cable to the wench that holds the tire up, no other way to get at the spare to use it.

I cant get the spare out from underneath. there


Check your Owners Manual for the location of the Spare Tire Release. Either underneath the carpet, or behind a cover: there should be a Nut shaped Spare Tire Release that you have to turn (should be counterclockwise) which turns the cable mechanism, which will lower the spare tire. Once the cable has been fully extended, pull the spare tire out from underneath the vehicle. Move the tire slightly back "up" onto the cable and turn the "cap" so you can fit the cap back through the hole in the middle of the tire.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Spare tire removal from underneath van cant seem to get the tire from the bracket is there a specail way to remove it


What's happening is that the latch is not releasing - a safety feature so the tire doesn't drop down onto the road should the cable or assembly rust/break etc. While researching I got this info from another forum: Jack up the rear of the van. Wind the spare "up". now put your jack under the spare to support its weight. Then "unwind" it. now look up through the spare to the winch assembly. You'll see a latch at the back - towards the rear of the van. Reach in with a long screwdriver and release it by moving it towards the rear of the van. If you've unwound the winch you should be able to move the plastic holder downwards. Once you've done this you can allow the tire to come down and remove it. Now remove the winch assembly - 5 or 6 bolts. Odds are you'll see apiece of wire hanging or it may have fallen out. You'll also see a spring clip - it clips onto the underside so when you unwind the winch it should pull the aforementioned latch to release the tire. You should be able to get this back in place by fiddling with it, or just attach a wire to the latch to work it manually. Or buy a new winch assembly - approx. $150. Good luck

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)
