White Out Pull the carpet up and you'll see how it slides out. Takes 5 min or less to remove.

I saved at least 1-1/2 pounds pulling that lightweight shield out

MH60M I have the cable in my 01 GTS. Its just holding the spare tire BRACKET & tub assy. The actual threaded bolt comes out of the bracket from the inside of the truck/hatch of the car. Twist-n-slide to out.........as previously mentioned.

That's not the EPA you children-hating bozo. It's the NHTSA. Jeeze. You're probably against speed bumps too.

dave6666 You can see the cable I'm talking about here. Maybe they all have that. Dunno. Can't remember how the bolt came out. Too many dead brain cells ago.

ZZ SRT Yeah, on my 97 GTS it's just in a groove and you twist it 90 degrees and slide it down the track and out. Super simple once you realize that's how it works.

dave6666 Pretty sure there's a cable spanning the frame rails that it attaches to. Maybe it's a later thing. When the EPA was trying to save more children from flying spare tires.

Are there different variations of that spare tire hold down bolt? I've got a 96 GTS and when I pulled the rear carpet it literally just slid right out.

How to remove spare tire bolt(threaded part)

Just trying to make extra room for my sub and also I can't picture myself installing the bike tire as a spare if I run into a flat.

The bolt sticking out is preventing me to put the box in. Anyone removed this and how?
