Okay so I'm trying to get the spare tire to drop down. I get the tire iron and everything in place and loosen the spare from the rear as stated in the manual. Only thing is when I loosen it all the way it stays dropped about 2 inches and doesn't drop any further. The mileage on the car is 120K. I don't believe the spare has ever been removed so it's been up there at least 8 years. exactly the same placement and mechanics as the envoys / blazers. Hoping someone has some advice.
