I was fitting new brake pads to my (mini) v brakes and stupidly pushed one of the arms very far inward to get easier access.
The spring (actually I'm not sure I mean spring, the pin/spring that pushes the arm back from the rim) either popped out or snapped, I couldn't tell which.
I couldn't really tell where it was meant to reattach or screw back in. Does anyone have a diagram or such showing how it should attach? Or can anyone explain how it should be attached?
I do not believe it's a model with multiple holes for different tension but I could be wrong.
It is completely loose now and the brake arm has no tension.
The brakes are very similar to these Tektro RX5 brakes unfortunately the manual on that page doesn't mention adjusting/refitting the spring.
