    If he's talking about the latch spring.... It's a little steel band.
    It fit's as an arch meeting the inboard end of the latch button.

    Uh.... Too hard to describe really.
    A picture is quicker.

    The spring is longer than depicted and shaped differently.
    This is just a description of WHERE it fits.
