    Description

    This is a hinge trunk spring tool used to remove the hinge springs (torsion rods) off the 1967 - 1973 Cougar or Mustang. No more trying to remove with the wrong tools . These can be tricky to remove without this tool. You will need a 3/8" socket wrench or breaker bar to use this new version of the tool.

    Will not work on 1964 - 1966 Mustangs.

    Here is a helpful youtube video on how to adjust your trunk lid.

    Check out our installation video below. We were using the older L-shaped version of the tool, but the same information still applies:

    A handy too for this annoying task. Not the same as the one in the video. You have to use a 3/8" ratchet or breaker bar for this one, which makes it awkward until you figure out which way to turn it. That's why 4/5 on correctness. Otherwise, a sturdy chunk of metal that works well.
