My name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and Advanced Level Specialist. I believe I can assist you.

I want to make sure we are talking about the same thing. You are referring to the spring that makes the handle return to its resting position?

There is a plastic plug behind the handle ( i guess you found it). If you pop it out there is a screw to remove the whole handle. Unfortunately, the only solution that I'm aware of is to replace the whole handle. The handles are inexpensive. A quick search shows aftermarket handles at about $15.
