Over center clutch return spring help!

Hi all! Im new to the forum and just bought my 2008 sky redline about 2 weeks ago. Was able to drive her for about an hour before it snowed so its parked for the winter now. Anyhow, while driving I could feel a catch in the clutch pedal. When I looked into it, I found the double coil torsion spring attatched to the pedal was broken. The linear spring is still attached and the pedal seems to operate normally but I want to replace the broken spring before summer. Ive searched under many titles on this site and on the solstice forum with no results. I went to my dealer and they said that I would have to buy the whole $270 clutch pedal assymbly to replace the spring. Has anyone else had this problem or a solution to it? The only other option I've found aside from buying the whole clutch pedal assymbly is to have the spring made by a spring manufacturing company. Just thought I'd ask before I decide to send the spring out to be made. Thanks for any help!

The spring on the right is the one for our cars. The spring on the left is for a c6 vette that i thought may fit...it did not, lol. Thankyou! I called an ebay distributer that was selling "redline clutch pedals" but the photo didnt show that spring and he told me that their assemblies didnt come with that spring Over center clutch return spring help!-spring.png

I responded to your other thread on the Sol forum. Did you look at it?

Clutch over center spring help!! - Pontiac Solstice Forum

I'm guessing that spring (from your photo above) is either from something completely different (and just happened to be there). Or it's part of the pedal assembly and not available separately. Given you said the clutch is working fine, I'd suggest the former.

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to try and get one off of a salvaged sky or solstice and if not ill just suck it up and buy the assembly. Thanks again!

Same thing happened to my previous '08 redline a couple years ago. Ended up paying a chevy dealer for the whole pedal for 270 like you said. I don't remember now but I don't think that included labor either. Same part.
