I'm going through and trying to fix all the current annoying problems
with my 90 Civic. The driver's door has a problem in that the extender/
pusher/tensioner thing, that keeps the door open, has been broken for
a long time. This is the thing that comes out of the front jamb and
pushes out on the door--a thin rod with a pin in it. The car side,
inside the front of the car, flops around and creaks, and the door
isn't under any tension.
What is this thing called? How do I fix it?
Thanks in advance,
