The Hummer H2's spare tire is mounted on a spare tire carrier on the rear cargo gate. If you have a flat tire, you'll need to remove the spare from the carrier so you can replace it. The Hummer H2 comes with a jack and tool set, and you'll need the lug wrench in the kit to remove the tire from the vehicle. If your tool set is missing, you can simply use a standard lug wrench.
Things You'll Need
- Lug wrench (supplied)
Turn off the H2's engine and set the parking brake. Step to the rear of the vehicle on the driver side. Inspect the driver side edge of the rear bumper. You'll see a cable running from the tow hook to the latch above the bumper.
Push the button on the cable pin and remove it from the bumper connection. Lift the latch on top of the bumper. This releases the spare tire carrier. Swing the carrier outward to open it to gain access to the back of the spare tire carrier.
Turn the wing nut on the back of the spare tire carrier with your hand to remove it. This releases the license plate bracket, which is attached to the front side of the carrier. Pull the license plate bracket off.
Remove the eight bolts on the back of the spare tire carrier using the lug wrench. This frees the spare tire from the carrier. Pull it toward you and set it down.
Tips & Warnings
- The Hummer H2 tool set is located in the driver side compartment of the rear cargo area.
