the bolts have small heads on them and you can unscrew them out of the door, plates will come off then as well, then put plugs in the holes or sometype of bolt, et

the bolts out of the door or the nuts to take the tire carrier off? I had mine off last night again and waxed behind the plates and around the bolt holes no problem at all
If its the bolts that run back into the door, little trick run one nut on backwards and another on top of it the right way, now take two 5/8 wrenches and tighten these together, with a wrench on the nut closest to the door loosen the bolt, if yours is older there may be some rust on the bolts but shouldn't be, but they should come out, steady pressure

Well those "E" torx ends on those studs like to shear off since they used more then enough tread locker on the threads about the only way is Vise Grips.I'm a shade tree/hillbilly/jerry rigging/redneck mechanic also but amazingly I found out I'm rather good at doing it the right way also,but when the right way fails watch out :wink: .

I twisted one of the tips off the very first time I took mine off, hardly put any force on it and bam, gone! Oh and I think you have all the bases covered there! :wink:

Yeah who ever invented Torx and "E" Torx should be shot,then shot again for fun :twisted: .

But back on topic I used black plastic barbed clips,got them at Advance Auto Parts in the "HELP" section,they are made for GM cars and come in a pack of 2.They are a tight fit but will not come out and you can remove them(maybe with a drill).

they have them in packages just look for one that will fit back into the bolt hole, or go and tell them what size you need its simple.
I never ask size I just go look for whatever I want, but then I grew up before you could sit and ask all kinds of questions and never go out and search

How do you carry your spare? I just added a bike rack bolted to the spare mount, now I have my surfboard and my mountain bike always with me and oh yeah, my ladder in case there is a roof to measure. I like my tire on the back.

Keep it on your roof, keep it in your backseat, or just leave it at home :roll:

I wouldn't try it either, though I've only ever had a flat once, and that time I got a lift to the garage to get it fixed, didn't bother getting the spare out.... Different vehicle though

I really like the look of tj's kj... with the spare off, and it someone hit you, like happend to myself, they would hit m massive RL rear and not cause all of that damage that they did.
tj gotta pic of the spare off from the side?

Ok I am digging up an oldie. So I took off my spare and I went to AZ to pick up some caps. They didn't have any and all they had were a few packs of small ones. I did buy 2 packs which looked like they would work...but they didn't, lol. Any other ideas? :D
