Hello and welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with your question.There is a Coil Spring tool ( J38864) and if you have never done this you should be very careful. I can send instructions if you wish.
You have to be very carful of removing the spring.
IMPORTANT: Draw a line across the spring through the center with a marker or grease pencil in order to aid in the re-installation and orientation of the counterbalance spring.
Do you know the cost on the tool and is there a work around for it?
No there is no work around for the tool and You can contact your local dealer and see if they stock it, as welll as pricing.
Thanks. Yes, could you send instructions?
I have sent them in the above post.
