REPOST: 88 5ksq trunk latch spring -- Does *anyone* know?

Posted a couple of days ago, but haven't seen or rec'd. any replies.  Does
*anyone* have an idea on this?  I would hate to have to replace the whole
latch mechanism if the spring is an easy fix.  I would be greatly
appreciative of any assistance.  Thanks!

A short, little spring in the trunk latch of my 88 5ksq broke.  Unbolted
latch to look inside and found spring, but can't figure out where the two
ends go.  I'm guessing that one goes on the little locking (?) arm with a
hole in it.  Not sure where other end goes.  Also, I'm guessing that the
spring is a closed loop on one end and open on the other?  My broken one
only has a closed loop and a little tail on the other end.  Is this a
hardware store, auto parts store, VW dealer or only Audi dealer part?  Have
a former Audi, now only VW, dealer in my area.  Audi dealer is a drive into

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
