Hi all.  I have a new one that I have a feeling I'm not going to be too 
excited  
about. I just got done washing my car and was almost done drying it when I  
lifted the drivers side door and got a mix between a loud bang and snap  
noise.
It sounded like it had quite a bit of force on it when it let go.  First 
thing that came
to mind was torsion bar and cracked rear glass.  Neither. I went over to the 
passenger side door and tried to open it and  it wouldn't. I thought maybe it 
had
locked ir something. Wrong again. It  just won't lift. What could've 
happened? If
it was the torsion bar it would  still open right? Just be heavier.  Any 
ideas?  Thanks
in  advance.......................Jason #5903


Jason,
 
Does the driver's side door show any signs of damage? Does it work  properly?
Does the passenger side door open at ALL? what exactly happens when you try  
to open it.
 
Lift the rear louvers and take out the three screws that hold the upper  
window trim/grill in.  The upper part is held in by tabs on the  T-panel.  Take a 
pliers or screwdriver and bend them out so you can remove  the grill piece.  
You can now see the ends of the torsion bars.  Are  either of the mounts spun? 
Is there is a chip or crack in the glass up  there?
 
Andy
