I would go to the local auto parts store and have them print a picture. but the repair is pretty straight forward.

The door panel has to come off. The window motor and regulator have to come off. The motor and regulator is held in screw or rivots.
The rivots have to be drilled out and replaced . Then the window comes right out. The bottom tabs on the window are glue so the window can slide on the track. The tabs have to be ordered seperately or come with the window sometimes.

Have fun

SOURCE: sway bar bushing and links

It will allow extra sway which will alter your handling in the near future and in time will do damage to the rest of the suspension.

Gday. I have an 02 tribut that makes a knocking noise from the front end whenever I drive over a rough surface. I have changed drivers side engine mount and sway bar links but still the same problem. Any...


Hi Adam

Have you also replaced the sway bar bushes? Also check the lateral member that runs from the FRONT of the the vehicle to the REAR of the subframe. It supports the front engine and transmission mount. The front two bolts have a metal bush inside of a rubber isolater. Undo then retighten these and the rear mount bolt up to torque. In saying that while its up on ramps start from the front and tighten every nut, bolt and screw right to the rear of the vehicle.
Also check, believe it or not, the front seat bolts. I had a persistent rattle in what I thought was the exhaust system, only to discover that all of the front seat bolts were only finger tight.

What is the torson bar on jimmy and where can you get the part for it?


1995-2005 Models NOTE: The following procedure requires the use of the torsion bar unloader tool No. J-36202 or equivalent.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the transmission shield, if equipped.
  3. Install a torsion bar unloader tool to relax the tension on the torsion bar adjusting arm screw; record the number of turns necessary to properly install the tool. Remove the adjusting screw and the unloader tool.
  4. Unfasten the lower link mount nut from one side, then disengage the torsion bars. NOTE: Note the direction of the forward end and side of the torsion bar being removed
  5. Remove the lower link nut from the opposite side.
  6. Remove the lower link mount, upper link mount nut, upper link mount and then unfasten the torsion bar from the frame.
To Install:
  1. Install the torsion bar and support.
  2. Install the upper link mount and mount nut.
    • Tighten the nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm) on 1995-96 models and 48 ft. lbs. (65 Nm) on 1997 and later models.
  3. Place a jack under the torsion bar to release tension, then install the lower link mount bushing and nut.
    • Tighten the nut to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm) on 1995 models, 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm) on 1996-98 models and 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm) on 1999 and later models.
  4. Install the torsion bar unloader tool and tighten the tool against the adjusting arm the same number turns recorded earlier, then remove the tool. This loads the torsion bars.
  5. Install the transmission shield, if removed.
  6. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.
  7. Check and adjust the Z height as outlined in the wheel alignment portion of this section.
