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:

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.

Wow, I was actually putting my spare back under the truck today...glad I put it on the right way. I'm surprised you can't just reverse the winch and drop it right back down...

My spare is also upside down. I'll have to try this procedure again, maybe my secondary isn't sezied after all...*crosses fingers*

LOL Andrew. That might be what I have to do with mine, at least now with some real (ie. not the Owner's Manual) directions there might be hope I can get my spare down.

I've been thinking about losing my spare too. I don't know how much help it would be if one of my 305/70/17s (pretty much 34's) went flat.

How much trouble is it to remove? Unbolt or whack and hack?

after you drop tire i think it is only like 2 bolts... so no cutting required just a socket set or a wrench
