Question about Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
Each brand of flashlight would have different mounting methods for their springs & i presume your main issue is to remove the old (& probably rusted/acid-corroded) spring...
without a photo of your specific spring's mounting, the best advice would be to:
* use a pair of side'cutters to cut off as much of the old spring as possible, but leave the mounting point intact. (with at least 7mm of the old spring also left in-place)
* then bend that remaining piece into a tight loop.(with needle'nose pliers or the side'cutter)
* feed the bottom end of your new spring through the tight loop you've created from the old spring & rotate the new spring until it is firmly seated between the old spring & the torch's casing.
>> if the old spring is completely trashed - your easiest solution would be to replace the torch unless you have skills in re-construction... (to securely Mount the new spring) ~ but if you had those kinds of skills, i doubt you'd have asked for help in the 1st place... :-p
