Some cars have the tools under the hood of car, the lug wrench will lower the tire, afterward make sure you crank the thing back up so your not driving down the road hearing a lot of metal banging or damage something underneath the car.

Sounds like a truck. Either a fold up in the spare tire tool kit. Possibly against back wall. Behind back seats. Are usual locations.

SOURCE: spare tire

I had the same problem with my 99 Grand Caravan SE and found this solution on a different site. It worked immediately. I used my hip to take the weight off the tire by laying under it sideways (because I don't have a third hand or a helper). Below is a cut/paste from the other site. Good luck!

There is a safety catch on the plastic wench bracket for the dog bone.
Here is how to fix it:
The tire will lower about 2 inches then stop. Lower the cable another couple of inches. Lie on your back under the tire and lift weight off the cable. With your third hand (get a helper - I used one hand to lift the tire) reach up and over the tire to the wench down tube. You will feel a wire connected to a square piece of metal. Pull on that metal piece, it should pop back for you releasing the tire.(You may have to pull up-and-out if it has a little rust on it.)
While you have the tire down, clean up the mechanism and apply some grease.

PS Make sure the spare has 60lbs of air before using it.

SOURCE: I need to take down the spare tire

along with the jack and the tire iron, there should be another metal rod that will have sort of a square, hex, or star shape on one end (this may also be part of the tire iron). with the trunk open, look along the top edge of the bumper and you should see a hole that you insert the rod into and then crank it to lower the tire out from under the car

SOURCE: the spare tire will not come down..the tool will

It's most likely all rusted real nicely. Get the tire down and leave it at home or come up with a way to lock it in the bed.

How to take a spare tire off gmc envoy 2004


Since the spare is mounted under the rear of the car, Its not easy...you have to assemble the long crank rod out of its two pieces, then feed the rod through the hole in the top of the rear bumper and lock it into the mechanism that holds the tire in place. Once the crank rod is locked in, lower the tire towards the ground. Once the tire is low enough, you can crawl under the car and release the tire from its mount. The hardest part is locking the crank rod into the spare tire mechanism through the hole in the bumper.

Removing the spare tire


Typically in larger sized passenger vehicles the spare will be stored in a bay underneath the rear of the vehicle. The spare is stored suspended above the road by a winchlike mechanism that requires the use of a long rod with an eye hook on one end. The rod should be stored with the jack kit in the rear of the vehicle. and the mechanism acessed with the rod through a small hole usually in the recess around the rear license plate frame.

Hope it helps,

I cannot figure out how to get the spare tire down


look for a small **** in or above the rear bumper. if this is your situation, then a long rod should have been included with your jack. this is a common way to lower the spare on a truck-type vehicle.

if this is ****/rod set-up is the case, then you will have to insert the long rod into the **** until it comes in contact with a slotted bolt head (like a regular screw/bolt and a regular screwdriver). then, turn the rod (usually by attaching the protruding end of the rod to a square hole in the middle of the tire iron, and using the tire iron as a handle) and the chain which holds the tire in place should loosten, and the tire will decend.

2005 kia sorrento how to take out spare tire


Lift the panel in the trunk, there should be a rod to crank your spare tire down. You have an opening on the left bottom of the back hatch. Insert the rod in this opening and use the lug wrench for your jack. Just crank this counter clock wise and the tire should begin to come down. Once it is all the way down, you have to take the center piece and turn it sideways in order to get the tire off.

How do i get my spare tire down? special tool? where?


Hello! Here is procedure to remove spare tire...Guru...saailer



  1. Park on a level surface and put on the emergency brake. If the car is near the side of a road, switch on the hazard lights.
  2. Locate the tire repair kit. It consists of a jack, a jack rod and a wheel nut wrench. In the regular cab, pull the entire seat bench forward. The tools are located behind the drivers seat. The King cab model has a tool case located directly behind the driver's seat. The Crew cab stows the tools behind the back bench. Pull the bench forward and remove the tools.
  3. Insert the square end of the jack rod into the square hole in the nut wrench. This gives the jack rod a handle.
  4. Find an oval shaped hole in the back of the truck under the middle of the tailgate. Look through the hole and find the winch for the spare tire. It is a circle with two notches.
  5. Insert the T-shaped end of the jack rod into the hole. Slip the T-shape into the double notched circle of the winch.
  6. Turn the jack rod counterclockwise to lower the spare tire to the ground.
  7. When the tire is completely lowered to the ground, remove the center retainer chain and pull the tire out from under the truck.
  8. Wind the jack rod clockwise to completely retract the retainer chain

How do I remove the spare tire on my 2001 chevy surburban?


Typically all Suburban spare tires are mounted on an under-car carrier. This carrier is usually accessed through a covered key way at the rear bumper near the license plate step. The jack that comes with the Suburban also has a crank rod that is used to raise and lower the jack. The other end of the rod is designed to access the key way to crank the spare tire lift up or down. Cranking the lift in a counterclockwise rotation will lower the spare tire.

I hope this helps:)

I can not remove the spare tire on my 2001 Chrystler Town and Country. The spare only comes down a few inches. It don't come down to the ground like it should.


Are you using the rod and turning the crank to lower the spare tire? There will be a little hold along the trim of the trunk opening by the top of the bumper. You need to insert the rod into this hole and crank it to lower the tire

How to take the spare tire off


I beleive these spares come down like the trucks do. There will be a crank handle under the hood and it will look like a long rod. There is a hole in the tailgate door sill. You put the rod into this hole and then crank and the tire lowers from the bottom of your Explorer.

Trying to get the spare tire off of my pick up truck


Hello, when you go to let it down can you turn the rod that you are useing to let the tire down? If not then the cable or gear box is rusted solid. That is what usually happens because of the location and lack of use. If it doesn't turn you will have to cut the cable or cradle that holds the tire up. If the rod does turn your spare tire carrier might have a safety catch. The catch can usually be released by putting a jack under the spare tire rim and raising it up. While your doing that turn the rod to crank up the tire. That should release the saftey catch and allow the tire to be lowered down.
