Yes, the spring is banjaxed!

Broken - or distorted?

If it's distorted, can you re-bend it to shape?

If it has dislodged, can you replace it properly?

There are lots of videos on YouTube, depending upon what the problem actually is.

You do not need the spring. The point rails will catch on the little lugs attached to the outer rails. You can bend them up if the point will not catch and stay put. I changed over to Peco Electrofrog when I rebuilt the layout over twenty years ago and those points are still in use and none have needed to be replaced.
