i have 2 broken springs in my throttle body assy ,, this is stopping 2 of the butterflies opening fully ,, the dealer is saying i need to replace the complete assy as these springs cannot be bought separate :

questions and help please :

  1. has anyone managed to source original replacement springs
  2. can other springs from say motorbike throttle bodies be used
  3. has any one had a similar problem and found a work around
i really dont want the cost of a full assy when only a couple of springs are needed

many thanks in advance
