SOURCE: How to install trunk lid torsion bars

one of those bars come out of its bracket ( on my 89 cougar)
none of the local shops would touch it, no even the body shops.
so i just connect one end to the lid, like normal, then with a pry bar, pryed out the other end and put in a small block of wood (two by four) then released the pry bar. took another bite pryed it out again then added another block until i got the desired spring back into the torsion rod. yes that's (jury rigged) but my trunk works almost like it should. if you need i can send you a picture of what i did.

How to install trunk lid torsion bar on 2008 Honda Accord sedan


most torsion bars ure under the least tension when fully open and have one bar facing right and one left
insert the fixed end in the bracket then with a suitable tool twist the end of the bar down as you put it in the hinge bracket repeat for the opposite bar
It is not easy until you get the idea as to how to twist the bar as you put it in place

How to fix the torque bar located in the trunk lid


You need to position the spring with the bushing on it against the hinge and set it into the slot just under the panel behind your backglass. On the opposite side, pull the end into say the middle hole for starters and make sure it is seated completely. Do the same for the other side, open the trunk and make sure it stays open, if not you can adjust it by moving your torsion springs to the next hole.
