Unable to lower spare wheel
Recently purchased a used 2001 Suburban.
Attempting to lower the wheel, I was unable to get the end of the tool to 'grab' or 'seat', when inserted up the tube.
I aimed a flashlight up the tube, and from as well as I can see, it appears as though there is something(metal) sheered off, at the end of the tube just above the wheel.
Is there any "backup method" for getting the wheel down?
Granted, I may be looking at replacing the wheel lowering mechanism, or at best extracting whatever some previous owner broke off up in there, but for now, I'd settle for just getting the wheel down.
Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
