2012 Mazda 5 GT: Had an ongoing issue with the parking brake not releasing properly. Pulled the wheel today and notice significant crud and debris caked around the cable pivot. Cleaned it all off and the pivot seems relatively free to move, so problem somewhat solved. However, the car has 215,000 Km’s on it and thinking it couldn’t hurt to pop a new return spring on there. Is the spring available separately anywhere (Canada)? I’ve searched and can’t find it unless I buy a new caliper for C$150-170, which obviously would solve all my issues, but I’d like to try a $5 spring before I go that route. Any tips?
