  • 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.

      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.

      Well thanks, this is the same ********* the user manual has and it didn't explain how, or what the "Secondary Latch" works (a picture would have been nice). So how does one release the secondary latch without knowing what it Fxxxxxx it looks like? Maybe I should have used On Star. No wonder GM is going under.

    SOURCE: I need a diagram of the spare tire rack on a 2004

    Because this was such a major pain in the *** for me, I figured I'd pass it along:

    https://www.partswebsite.com/reyreece/index.php?i=2&model=2071&make=127&year=2004&section=150&catid=30223&type=parts&subcatid=55311&item_collision=1&items=none&image=1060605&catid=30223

    Not exactly a breakout diagram, but it's the best I've been able to find.

    Spare cable stuck on yukon xl


    this is a safety feature on all gm vehicles. tighten spare tire all the way up until you hear 2 clicks in the spare tire compartment and also you should feel it in the wrench then lower the tire and this should work if not then start the process over

    How do I remove the release mechanism on the rear bumper ?


    I am assuming your Yukon is the same as my suburban. Once you open the little black door one uses the ignition key to unlock the lock and remove it. Then I am able to access the the inner cable with the jack rod and lower the spare. Show me a picture but it should be the same. Good luck ---

    Whats wrong with my 2004 yukon when it doesnt turn right?


    This sounds like a bad valve in the rack and pinon. I just had a simalar problem on a Mitsubishi .. I replaced the rack with a A1 Cardone rebuilt rack and it cured the problem.. Rebuilding a rack is a job better left to the pro rebuilders.. you can call the teck line for A1 cardone and ask them what they think.

    Code po449 is the canister vent valve solenoid error.This is a common problem with these valves because they are under the truck in the rear by the spare tire and they get all the dirt and water and snow,if you live in an area where you get snow.You will find it on the canister under the vehicle by the spare tire.
