        Removing existing Torque Bar

        Remove the interior bug screen ( screens clipped in place and pops off with a plastic putty knife or flat screwdriver.

        Remove Phillip's head screw a few inches from the T-Handle and gearbox on the face of the aluminum crossbar; this holds the spring in place.

        The far end of the torque bar will be the fixed pivot bracket, with two rivets holding the pivot bracket to the aluminum crossbar on the top side.

        You must drill the rivets and remove the pivot bracket by sliding it off the torque bar.

        Once the bracket is removed, you can slip the other side of the torque bar out of the gearbox. (if any broken piece remains in the gearbox, remove it.

        With the torque bar removed from the pivot and gearbox, slide the wheels down the tracks on the vent glass to remove the bar from the glass panel.

        You should now have the torque bar wholly removed.

        Installing the new Torque bar

        The end of the torque bar with a slit in the tube goes into the gearbox; the gearbox has two guides to line up to bar slots. This will be the side that goes to the gearbox, while the solid side of the bar goes to the fixed pivot bracket.

        With the orientation determined.

        Guide the wheels of the arms of the new torque bar through the tracks on the vent glass.

        If you are installing with the vent glass all the way open, turn the knob counterclockwise until it stops to match with a fully open vent; if installing with the vent glass closed, turn the gearbox clockwise for the closed position.

        Put the torque bar end into the gearbox, and be sure that the gearbox lines up to the slit in the bar ensure torque is pushed in fully. Next, put the spring in place and the set screw back in.

        Slide the fixed pivot onto the far end of the torque bar, line up to the drilled holes, and either re-attach with rivets or sub out for a #8 (length of ½-3/4”) machine screws with lock nuts if you do not have a rivet gun/rivets.

        At this point, test for functionality and pop the screen back on.
