That rocker section can be removed once you have the
handles and door card off.  You can reach in and
disconnect the remote door lock arm.  You can remove
the three screws on the edge of the door, and then
work the mechanism out after you unhook the arm that
connects to the cam which is operated by the door

Once the mechanism is out, you can examine it for
breakage of the spring.

I haven't tried to get a new one but Pierre or one of
the other suppliers might have one.  Ruth and the Club
have some used ones and perhaps one of the U.S. chaps
may chime in with an offer.
