Overhead Door Handle Spring

Hello all. (First post so apologies if it is in the wrong forum).

The little spring that holds the overhead door handle up has gone missing in my GTI. So now the handle is constantly "down" and won't hold itself up.

I can't seem to find the Part Number for the spring, only the entire handle itself. Is it possible to just get the spring and fit it back in? Or will I need to replace the whole handle? If the latter, any idea where I can get one?

Thanks in advance.

I don't thin it's available separately. You can try removing one from another handle and looking for a similar one on the web.
