spare tire hoist

587 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  senorschmidt
I just bought and installed a new spare tire hoist in my 08 suburban 2500. I was able release te cable all the way, but I can't seem to get it to retract. The cable only retracts about halfway and them jams/stops. I have tried releasing it and then trying to retract several times, but it always stops about halfway in. Anyone have this happen to them? I guess the new hoist is broken, but I don't know if I am missing something.

Do you have any weight on the hoist? You might need some weight on it the first few lifts to knock off any burrs.
