Anyone ever replace their seat latch spring? Mine isn't provide enough resistance and when I hit rough pavement the seat pin sometimes jumps out and I'm sitting on a seat that isn't attached anymore-pretty annoying. usually I can reach back and grab the back of the seat and reseat the pin until I hit a bump again.

I bought a new stiffer spring but am not sure how to remove all the associated bits and pieces of the system. there's a cone shaped thing that the spring seats against that seems to be "permanant". If this isn't clear or if all years are different, I'll take a pic.

On my 02..
The cone shaped pice is crimped onto the cable. I guess it could be carefully open enough to remove from the cable and recrimped after swapping the spring.
The spring on mine provides almost no pressure when the seat is latched.
