Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
Try turning the printer upside down and rocking it back and forth to see if you can tip the original spring out. If you can't locate it or hear it rattling around inside, find a replacement spring at the hardware store and hope the spring flew out of the printer when it broke.
If it's a tension spring (hooked on each end), drill a small hole (probably #60-#54 drill size - choose the smallest size that will accommodate the spring wire) in the remaining plastic, and hook it up on this end. Reinforce the area around the new hole with the spring in it with a couple of thin layers of epoxy before connecting the other end of the spring.
