    I lost one of the two gold springs on the back of a 9300 mudman module. I spent ages looking for it. I cannot find it anywhere.

    I am looking for a replacement on pacparts from another model that is also long like the mudman spring. I remember seeing individual springs sold for some models but I can't find them now. I hate to have an entire project costing hundreds of dollars be ruined because of one spring.

    If need be I can resort to cutting a springbar spring but I prefer not to

    Isn't the spring just for making contact with the piezo speaker? I'm guessing that it has a pretty high tolerance for being a different size. Perhaps you can wind your own?

    I think that was said here before that the spring from the spring bars that hold the strap could do the job

    It is actually just slightly too wide to fit in the hole for this spring. I did try it though before I found the spring.

    Good job on finding the spring. I've learned to hate those little buggers. I had my own run in with them today when I revisited my 5030 project to try to fit the 3229 module from the 5600P4. I managed to get it to fit this time, so I had to disassemble the 1545 module in it to get the correct LCD back for the 3229. When I disassemble a 3229, I always end up dropping out that back piezo contact spring; I didn't lose it thankfully, but it nearly crossed my eyes trying to get that bugger back in.

    On a side note, do you think that spring from the 3229 module would've worked for your Mudman module?

    I've lost more springs over the years! There use to be advice to work on the watch within a freezer type bag, so you'd catch any bits that fly off, except the bag is that optically crap you really can't see what you are doing!

    I work on Cell phones for a living. Stuff flies across the room all the time. Never thought of a freezer bag, but yeah I think it might make seeing some of those parts a bit difficult.
    Watch you seek, is watch you find, or maybe just covet.

    The solution is simple: Get a bigger plastic bag.
