Who can explain how to put the circular spring correctly on the hood hinge? :evil:

I need to put the spring on the hinge but can't get it on properly for the hood to open and close correctly. :x

If I remember correctly, I think there's something about it in the Shop Manual.

If you don't have one, I can look it up.

I know that it'll just slide on in the unwound position, but you have to actually put the spring under a load to get it to do what it's supposed to do.

This is a tough one I know. I have tried a lot of "wrong" ways but haven't came across the correct way yet. I know it's gotta be "wound" somehow to work properly.....if I only knew the somehow answer would sure help a lot. :x

Look on the Vendor's Page on the main site (link below) for Roland Hall.

Roland rebuilds hood hinges and for sure knows how to wind them.

His phone number is there.
