Question about 2005 Mazda 3
To my knowledge, the spring is merely to assist the pedal to return at its default position (clutch engaged), that is pedal up. Normally, it would have an exaggerated j ends. The ends are meant to hook to two (2) slots, one at the pedal itself, the other at the bracket/housing or firewall and not replace the entire clutch assembly. Having said that and as per your post, the clutch works fine, it is a matter of finding a replacement spring of similar physical characteristics/dimensions and hook in place. Hooking in place is relatively easy saved that you have to crouch down and use a long noise pliers. A mechanics troubleshooting lamp would help seeing where the j ends would and should go into.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

I had the same thing happen to my car. Mazda has issued a bulletin regarding the 2nd spring which is only required to assist bleeding the clutch during manufacture. Mazda do not replace it when it fails and they do not have the part listed. if you want the clutch to have the same pedal feel you just need to replace it with a similar spring.
