Not sure what vehicle, but most you remove the spare tire and then you should be able to get to the mounting bolts. Sent from my LGL86C using Tapatalk 4

How do I remove the spare tire hoist?

Are you talking about lowering the tire or actually removing the hoist? Once the tire is down, it's a matter of a few bolts

Sorry I forgot to post my vehicle a 2001 suburban 1500  4wd.

There is only one bolt but I am having trouble removing the tubing.

There is a clip that holds tube to the bumper. Looks like a star washer only bent to fit hole?( hard to describe)  Should be able to take small flat screwdriver and pop it loose. Then tube will come loose.

Yes, there is a star washer thingy as Matt described.

Could not remove it in one piece. Had to cut it with side cutters, mangling it to get it off.

Dealer supplied me with replacement for small $.

When mine needed to be replaced back in '06 or '07 it was because I was less than a mile away from getting on the freeway and my spare tire fell off in the middle of the street! lol

 

I was driving away from school and I heard a huge thump, then looked back and saw the tire in the middle of the road, luckily no one hit it or vice versa.


5.3L, 3:73 gears, and 2WD.

Mine fell off turning into a bank parking lot back in 08. I put it back on finally a couple months ago with a new winch, new bolt (old one somehow stripped), and red loctite Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S4 using Tapatalk 4

I ditched mine when it jammed as well. Easier access in the bed anyways.

Simple, keep on driving it and at some point it will fall off.

 

At 140k Miles mine fell off (mount ripped free of the truck bed).  Fortunately no one was behind me in traffic.
