Next, put the washer and nut on-but do not tighten it all of the way! Only tighten enough so that the tip of the bolt is flush with the nut. In some vehicles, the bracket will become slightly tweaked, so this will give the linkage a little play. If it is tightened all of the way down, you'll activate the motor and it won't pop back up after pulling it. Then, when you shut the door, the door will bounce right back at you. This is a crucial step!
