Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
The bars fell off and i can figure out how to put them back on.
If you have a local scrap yard, contact them as they remove parts all of the time and they can advise you of how to put them back.

SOURCE: Trunk wont stay up
To re-connect the bar. Have an assistant hold the lid while you reinstall it. I know this part is tricky.First look to the L/S and see a grduated adjustment fixture ( where the rod fell off from ) I would use a 6' 1/2" drive extention with a deep 1/2 " drive socket.The trunk torque bar ( spring ) has a app 3/8"wide end pointing down when held. Place socket/ext over end , applying pressure to turn the pint of the spring towards you, then latch in appropriate groove ( see R/S to gauge groove location ). A pipe can replace the tools. Hope it helps

SOURCE: Trunk lid bars came off
grab a pair of pliers and twist it forward, back onto one of the four spots. watch out though, because when they are pulled up the tension is insane and can snap back REAL quick. i have a hole in my arm from one snapping back and catching me on the forearm when i was installing a new sub box.

SOURCE: how to adjust a torsion bar
Jack up the vehicle on the wheel to be adjusted, and set the frame rail onto a jack stand. This is to release the stress on the torsion bar so it can be adjusted easily.
