Spring is attached to the body and to the mechanism in front of the cassistunnel.
I don't know how the spring looks like....
Who can help with that? :beer:

I don't have a spare but this is what you need, I don't see why you can't get something similar at a good hardware store.

Spring is just over 100mm long, 12mm wide and the hooked ends are approx 15mm long from the end of the coiled spring (note one of mine is bent out of shape. Spring hooks over the lug at the bottom of the bar in your picture and the other end hooks on something in the tunnel.

Hope that helps

Cheers

There is a shop near-by where i live, will make any spring you like.
Pascal i'm sure in Belgium you must have the same.

Sorry Pascal, I cannot help with a new spring, but a word of advice to anybody who is taking out their brake pedal/handbrake pushrods- MAKE SURE THE SPRING IS TIED TO THE TORSION BAR NUT VERY SECURELY!!!! Mine slipped off yesterday and it took me SIX hours to fish it out from the framehead. Not a nice job to do!!

I know what you mean Rich,
Everything was missing inside the tunnel.
I found every part exept the spring but I will check if there is much diffrence between the springs inside the brake drumms.
We where with 3 persons to mount and hold everything in place....
Absolute not a nice job to do!:(

I've attached a brake drum spring and it is working! :d
After 1 hour it was fixed after shouting H*ll and D*vil,not an easy job! :lol:
I'll try to find a correct one to make a copy.

I'm glad you got it fixed with the brake spring Pascal. I think it is one of the most difficult jobs on any VW I have worked on. I have now attached a loop of 1mm stainless steel welding wire to the front of my spring and attached a piece of string! I will never lose the spring again!!
