OK, now that I see it is from the clutch, I can understand why I do not see anything missing from under the seat.

It looks like the part is in fact the Over center spring 4A0 721 403E which can be had from worldimpex for $23.25

Thnaks for the help.

of the return mechanism for either the clutch or brake pedal.   I had it
fall on my feet (spring broken in 2 or 3 places, still within the white
plastic casing) about 2 years ago and the only issue has been that I
need to tug the clutch pedal back a bit with my toe in order for the
cruise to engage.   It bothers me to no end, but the job just looks a
bit too much like work.  Plus, I haven't found a good replacement
