Question Toro 521 disengage Spring

Hi All!!

right in the middle yesterday, the disengage spring broke. So if I put it in 1,2 or 3 it takes off on its own. Not a HUGE deal, but annoying, as I have to put it in revers to make it stop, THEN I CAN press the handle to go backwards, then shove it in 1,2, or 3 to make it go forward on its own.

I took the back off, and sure enough, the spring is broke, Is there an tip for getting that spring out. the front of the spring broke, but has a pretty good hook in the back that will take a contortionist to remove

Or.. what is the minimum I need to remove to get to it? I used a hanger to the spring to finish the job, but - ya - pretty ghetto looking. Today I got the right spring, but the back wont let go easy.

Thanks!! to anyone that can help...
