spare tire removal

Postby sewerrat [OP] » Feb 04 2013, 12:56am

I wanted to remove the spare tire, but the thing only drops a few inches and that is it, so I look in the manual , and there is a secondary latch on it, I follow the instructions in the manual but it still won't come down.
Then it says you have to put the jack under neath the centre where the cable comes out jack it up then the secondary latch should come on done. Well that still don't work.
Any other ideas how to lower the spare tire?

My truck is an '05 chev 1500.

Thanks.

No not at all, but that's the best advice I can give since I just read that "how to" earlier :)

But I figured Jon deserves the credit if it does work and if it doesn't well I'll be in trouble for bad information pertaining to this specific case...

You are great at disclaimers. Just a hint though: Jon needs no help with credit. He sprained his arm patting himself on the back last week. lol.
