Most body shops have a tool that compresses the spring to install it. You will come out better visiting your local body shop to have replaced. As the spring can cause injury if pops back when compressed.

Central locking froze on my daewoo nubria and cant even open doors manually?

I recently fixed the same problem on my 1999 Nubira. my door wouldnt open. lock would not unlock.
I fixed my problem by taking out the clothing on the inside of the door (real difficult) and then i could "pick the lock" with a wire, and loads of luck.
the problem i had was a broken spring caused by moisture getting it to rust. pardon my bad english, im from the netherlands.
I replaced the spring with a new one, and thus fixed the problem, but mind you that your problem could be totally different.
Daewoo is known for their lock issues. moist and electrical problems. both can be solved by keeping an eye on them. which nobody ever does for the difficulty to get your eye on it.

The driver side door lock wont go all the way up.

The outside door handle spring is broke ,or the latch spring is broke. The only way to tell is remove the door panel and inspect the rod from the handle to latch. Look for broken spring on handle. I have installed an external spring from the handle rod to latch to keep the rod in the full up position.

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier

Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
