You can access the mechanism to lower the spare tire from under the van.
I go crazy everytime I have to open the hood on my 98 Chevy Astro. The guys just say "oh it's a Chevy" and they bang the hood. I have found that if I stick a butter knife unde the hood I can open it. What a pain!
how do you get the door open
The best answer I found for my 2002 Astro was to keep the trailer harness inside the van until needed, then simply open the door, bring out the harness, and close the doors with the harness on the floor of the van, coming out between and under the dutch doors. The rubber gaskets around the doors allow the doors to close on the harness without putting a kink in it, even. This protects the harness from weather when not in use.
my back door to my astro van is jammed some how cannot open it is there another way to open this door. Desperate,
open it up and back into a tree this worked for me
open hood look to ur left on firewall.
The 1999 Chevy Astro horn relay switch can be found on the back of the horn. The relay switch will be attached to the horn with two retaining screws.
