Good afternoon, do you happen to have a photo of the spring you can upload, this way we can identify it.

Thanks for responding. Yes I have a photograph but not confident of how to send it but will attempt. The clip is of the order of 16mm long.

Please confirm if you can view from this.
Thanks , Puzzled

Hi, yes I can see the photo. That spring is located on the clutch unit, it acts as a belt guard. Not all clutches where fitted with them. So you can either leave it off but keep safe so if you strip the machine again you can refit it. Or strip the machine down again now to refit. If it was me I would not worry about it for the time being

Thanks for your response. Thats a relief to learn i can use the cleaner safely until i strip it down again. I will retain as you recomend. Is there a diagram available showing where this fits on the clutch unit i.e.an explodedf view?

This shows where the clip is located. It can only be fitted one way.
