Front Door Latch

Already posted in doors and locks section but no hits. Though maybe some here may have an answer?

Iíve got a 2018. Noticed the door latch doesnt pop back into place like it was doing before. Luckily door still opens.

I opened up the latch and saw a little spring had broken and itís just sitting on the ledge. Was hoping someone had a schematic that I could look at to order a replacement spring... or is this something like I need to replace the entire assembly to fix this?

Can post pictures in the morning if needed.

Get a good quality non sticky wax like lubricant
Grease attracts dirt and makes it worse.
Get some dry carbon lub, used for old car antenna, or we use boeshield t9

Thanks, I assume thatís for after the spring is fixed. Any thoughts on replacing the spring? Is there a part number for it or so I need to replace them entire exterior assembly?
