RE: [DML] Torsion adjustment

Hi Matt,

  I did the Torsion adjustment myself, and it wasn't difficult at all.  I 
can see how you could break the window if you tool slips, but if you brace 
it you'll be fine.  The proceedure from PJ Grady is elaborate and too much.  
Here is the quick version:
  get a 6' long 2" diameter pipe, a 1/2 drive hex socket and extension bar 
(hard to find, order online).  Put protective cloth over the stainless and 
place a piece of wood across the back of the car to brace the extension bar 
from slipping.
  Take off the black plasic piece covering the torsion plates, brace the 
door open.  Mark with a marker which pin the gear is lined up with and the 
outline of the plate to be able to line up the bolt holes again.  Get a 
person on a ladder to hold the hex bolt in place and take the weight off of 
the plate.  Take out the bolts, move the plate 2 clicks and put it back.  If 
it sticks, give the socket bar a tap, spray with lube.
  If you look at it these directions make sense.  I'm a software engineer 
(not a mechanic) and was able to do it, don't be too afraid of all the 
warnings.  Best of luck!
