Default It fell off!!!!

I was driving my Blazer in Scotland while on vacation and I went over a rather large speed bump. I heard a loud thud and looked in my mirror and saw a donut rolling around in the middle of the road. I slammed on the brakes and jumped out. My cable assy on the bottom of the blazer rusted off and it snapped. Good thing I was only going 30 mph verses 60 mph around the Loch Ness. Oh by the way, how does one reattach it when it falls off? hehe. I'm talking about my spare tire hanger.

Eh, happens sometimes. Especially once rust takes hold of the cable.

Only real resort is to toss it in the back, and find a replacement crank assembly.

It was funny for us at the same time. 2 kids in the back, wife in the passenger seat and me the driver just stunned. Is there a repair kit or assembly that I can buy? Yeah it's a donut but it's nice to have that comfort.

Yes you can buy this part I know for sure at the dealer (not sure about aftermarket) It's called a spare tire hoist.

that is part of the reason that i hav the spare master locked - so if the cable breaks, i wont leave it behind, cause mine is full size

and so it does not get stolen
