Well catch 22 here, you have to remove the tire to get at the cable reel, have it cut off with a high speed cut off wheel.

The cable that lowers the spare tire will not release the tire all the way so there isnt enough slack to remove the spare


spray the cable and all the turning parts with liquid wrench. wind it back up, spray what you can and lower again. repeat this until things free up. probably just dirt and salt and rocks

The spare tire will not lower only the wire lowers. Whats wrong?


Some times when the spare tire has been up for a while the tire rubber sticks to the frame of the car. To get it free you just need to lower the wire holder about 2 inches then sit on the ground and kick the tire loose from the frame. Do not loosen the tire to much or it might fall off the cable and land on you.

Good luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer

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.

    How do I get the spare wheel from under my 2006 toyota highlander


    Hello.

    You have posed a great question, one I am sure future viewers here will want to see answered.

    The spare tire, under the vehicle, is lowered via a cable. There is a silver bolt in the rear compartment, under the carpeting. Pull the carpeting back, and you will see the bolt. Using the lug wrench from the tool kit, rotate the bolt counter-clockwise. This will rotate the cable mechanism above the spare tire, and lower it. Once the tire is low enough, the center clamp can be loosened from the center of the rim, and the tire removed from the cable device.

    To raise the wheel back up, place the clamp device back into the center of the rim, and rotate the bolt clockwise, until the tire is fully raised.

    Thanks for the Question.

    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:

    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.

    If the tire does not lower with the jack parts from the access door then you will have to put the jack up under the presseurerelease in the middle of the tire till it releases.
