SOURCE: Safty lock for spare tire on 2003 chevy silverado

Check your owners manual .There is a saftey catch that will need to be realased by using your bottle jack and tire stops that come with your truck. If you dont have a owners manual. What you can try is taking a floor jack and a socket place it under the spairtire right in the center where the cable holds the tire in place. start jacking it up until the socket hits the square part in the center once the socket is aligned with the square part continue to jack up it should release it . Its a stupid system but it will work if the cable wont allow the tire to drop. good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: how do you remove the spare tire from a 2006 chevy

To remove the spare you need to access tools stored in the back of the vehicle, passenger side storage area. Open llftgate, remove net (if equipped), lift tab and remove cover to tool storage. Attach folding wrench to extension, insert 'chisel' end on an angle through the hole in the rear bumper and into the hoist shaft. Turn wrench counter-clockwise to lower spare enough so you can pull it from beneath the van to detach. Good luck!

SOURCE: spare tire won't release.

This is the worst GM engineering i have ever seen !!!! The secondary locking mech. rust itself in the locked position on will NOT allow the tire to lower. After lowering the tire down approx. 2-4" the saftey lock is still engaged. I was able to reach above the tire and remove the bolt holding the hoist in place. {15 mm wrench}. Keep a floor jack under the tire to support it and as not to fall on your head. After removing the bolt the hoist is hooked on the frame member and must be lifted off to remove. Once you get it on the garage floor it is possible to disengage the locking mech. with a few tools and a big hammer. Good luck This should be a Recall

SOURCE: How do you remove the spare tire on a Chevy 2005

There is a place at the rear, into which you put the jack handle, then turn counter clockwise and a cable releases the tire.

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.

Where is the unlock code on 2002 windstar keyless entry


Usually kept in several places. One is in owners manual, another is behind storage doors (small doors in cargo area with jack and rear washer storage) or on back of spare tire area in back compartment. Look for a sticker on back side of spare tire cover, or in front or rear of owners manual etc. It sometimes is just a sticker with 5 numbers on it and says nothing else. If all else fails you can usually have dealer look it up if you bring paper to them showing you own vehicle. The manual tells you how to add your own number to also work with system - but if battery unhooked for long enough it will go back to just remembering factory code.

Where is the spare on a 95 ford windstar


it should be right behind your rear bumper up under your van. The way it is removed is to take your tire iron extension bars that should have come with your vehicle and assemble them. then you should see a hole near your license plate tag or somewhere on your bumper to stick the rod in ( sometimes the hole has a lock that your ignition key should unlock) then you turn the crank handle and lower down your tire.

Where is the spare tire located on a 1995 ford aerostar?


Section 00-02: Lifting, Jacking and Spare Tire Stowage 1995 Aerostar, Ranger, Explorer Workshop Manual
TIRE STOWAGE Tire, Spare, Removal, Aerostar If the Aerostar is a standard length vehicle the spare tire is mounted inside to a carrier at the left rear quarter panel. To remove the spare tire, remove the wing nut and plate. A flat tire can be temporarily stowed in the same location.



If the Aerostar is the bus with a standard length body or extended length (all models), the temporary spare tire is stowed at the rear of the vehicle under the body. The Aerostar standard length E-4WD bus spare tire is mounted on the floor.
  1. Insert lug nut wrench into the actuator hole and turn counterclockwise until the cable extends to allow the spare tire to be pulled rearward from under the vehicle.
  1. Slide spare tire to the rear and remove the retainer from the wheel.
  1. To stow cable/retainer with spare tire removed, insert cable fitting into carrier rear wall slot, place wheel retainer against the carrier, and turn lug nut wrench clockwise until slack is removed.
please rate, thanks

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!

How do i unlock the spare tire?


If the spare is under the rear of the van you will have to open the rear hatch and lift the carpet up to reveal what looks like a big nut. Using the wrench that you take the tires off with turn that nut counter clockwise and that will lower the spare tire. Turn it the other way to raise the tire.

WHAT IS THE NAME FOR THE CABLE THAT HOLDS THE SPARE TIRE UNDER TH


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'

Spare Tire


I had the same problem, but finally figured it out.
Open the back door, and look for a hole dead center, you'll see the crank plug that holds the tire up.
Using the jack crank put it through the hole into it and go counterclockwise. You should soon notice the tire beginning to lower. It seems pretty lame, but at least you don't have to hold the spare up with a jack and undo a bolt, which I have had to do on past vehicles.
