Get ready: Collect the tools you’ll need, like winding bars, pliers, and a socket set. Wear protective gear like gloves, goggles, and a hard hat.
Disconnect the power: If your garage door has an automatic opener, turn off the power to avoid accidents while you work.
Release the tension: Use a winding bar to loosen the torsion spring and release the tension. Be careful not to let the spring fly off, as it can be dangerous.
Remove the old torsion spring: Lift it off the center bracket and set it aside.
Install the new torsion spring: Attach it to the ends of the garage door and use the winding bar to tighten it and restore tension. Make sure it’s balanced and aligned.
Reattach the garage door: Put the door back on the tracks and secure it with bolts. Test the door to make sure it works properly.
