GT2544 Parking Brake/Cruise Control Pawl Spring
The spring that releases the parking brake pawl on my son's GT2544 has come loose and we're not sure what the bottom of the spring should hook to. It's the spring marked as "25" on the attached parts diagram, and it appears to apply tension to the parking brake rod in order to hold the pawl away from the teeth on the bracket below it until the parking brake (or cruise control) is set by the operator.
I'd just hook it to the frame on which the whole mechanism mounts (as per the attached pic), but I don't see a "notch" of any kind to retain the spring (as there seems to be with every other spring) and that option also seems to leave the pawl hanging high enough in the air that it will bump against the running board panel once re-installed.
Any help? Thanks so much!
