BTDT....smashed the holly crap out of my thumb when the spring let go and pinned my thumb between the lever and its stop. All this while I was under the car adjusting the linkage. Trapped as I was, thumb securely held in place and hurting ever so much. I was about to yell for my significant other to come save me, but was able to save myself and my dignity by using a handy screwdriver to pry the tension off the spring. Beware...lots of potential energy in that spring!
