For inside it is part # 21818 and comes as an assembly . For out side it is part of 22454 and comes as a kit back in the day . May have a used spring if that helps him .

Default inside door actuator

sorry . the door actuator is for the inside door handle. seems everyone wants to either sell a new one or rebuild the old one. al I need is the spring. one parts dealer wants to rebuild the old one, told him all I wanted was the spring,said he didn't have because they send them out for rebuild. if I knew the rebuild company I think they would sell just the spring. t bird vender wouldn't tell me the name of the rebuilder

That small pivot spring is around the shaft and sandwiched between two metal pieces welded together. Don't think you could change the spring . I have seen them use a regular spring on the pivot to any convenient hole in the door . Most used units that have the broken spring are from the driver door as it gets most use . Good luck in our repair.
