problem #3

Sep 242017

S-10 Pickup

  • 110,500 miles


While in motion on the freeway, the spare tire hoist cable under the truck bed failed and the spare tire dropped to the ground. After it fell, a second safety cable used to prevent theft of the tire was causing the tire to drag behind the vehicle for an unknown number of miles. While pulling over, the safety cable also failed due to rubbing against the ground and the tire came fully loose from the truck. Another vehicle behind the truck ran into the tire but no major accident occurred. Both vehicles were able to pull off the road. The loose spare tire and the loose safety cable lock were recovered, however, the broken piece for the tire hoist was not recoverable. Damaged/failed hardware: Oem spare tire cable hoist (failed), third part safety cable (damaged)
