Trunk torsion rod instalation 2004 chevy cavalier


This is rather hard to describe in words with out a picture. But here goes...

With the trunk lid propt safely open and the hinges in place, place one torsion bar in position so the end with the "U" end is by the hinge. The hinge has a link on it with a hook. The hook connects to the "U". Once connected, do the other hinge/bar. Last step is to place tension on the bars by postitioning the "L" end in one of the slots. You may need to do a trial-by-error in the different slots to acheive correct tension to keep the lid in the open position

My trunk won't pop open when I lift the trunk release lever


you can adjust the tension by moving one or both bars. on one end it should sit in one of three notches. I have moved mine by hand but you may need a screwdriver or pry bar on some cars. also depending on the car, you may want to put something to protect your rear window. As some have alot of tension and may spring out, and hit the window. Just try different positions till you get your desired effect. And a last note sometimes the bars become bent or really weak from use. And may require to be replaced. If so then they can be ordered from the dealer.

Fix back spare wheel case under boot


Put your head under the rear of the vehicle, near to the back of the car in the centre you should see a threaded bar with a hook on it. This should hook onto the back edge of the wheel rack. The length of the bar is controlled by screwing the threaded bar from inside the trunk with the wheel nut wrench. If it's not broken, it was not tightened up enough, it traps the spare wheel between the rack and the boot floor. When it is tightened up the bar should lock against the hook end to stop this happening

Pontiac sunfire 2005, bar from the trunk fell off


they are usually a combination of bars one over the other and sort of spring loaded and locked by clamps you may have to go to what we in Canada call an auto wreckers and see if you can buy the whole assembly and replace it., all the bars if locked in place properly will open the trunk and hold it open until you press or push it closed

My one series bmw top does not go down with the button


It's simple.  In the trunk on the left side remove the trunk lining.  It comes out and goes back easily.  There are two motors that need to be reengaged.  The first you will see, just push it up.  It will snap in place.  The second is toward the bumber on left.  It is behind a metal bar.  Pull it towards the bar and it will snap in place.  That's it.

Do you mean pitman arm. Yes neons steer with the front wheels. All production Neons have Rack and Pinion steering. If it is a pitman arm that is an older steering system found on older cars and large trucks and bigger SUV's.

How to install trunk lid torsion bars


I have a 2006 Saturn Ion. There are two torque bars in the trunk. One has the insulation on it and the other comes without insulation. Using a bungee cord, I hooked one end above my license plate in a gap and the other end I just stretched until it reached my back door and I shut the door on it. That is how I held the trunk up. Next, I took the rod without the insulation and put the rounded loop part of the bar to the right of the trunk. I rested the other end of the bar that has the squared loop in the middle slit toward the left side of the trunk. I then used one hand to lower the trunk a little to get the right end in place easier. There is the very end of the bar on the right side of the trunk that goes in the slit on the roof of the trunk, the rounded loop that goes under that hook on the bar of the trunk, and just to the left of that loop where the rounded part becomes straight again that goes on the upper most slit just under the roof of the trunk. After all that is in place, go to the left side of the trunk near the three slits and push up as hard as you can to get the left part of the bar to rest on the lower slit and then you\'re snapped in. Repeat for the piece with the insulation on it but reverse what I said about right and left side. You have to install the pieces in that particular order or it won\'t work out. You might say Jesus Christ a few times too but have patience. It is worth it.
