Hey guys, need help with springs on a new couch!

Hey, so I bought this couch from Macy's about 2 years ago, and just the other day I heard a pop when sitting down (I am not that big! ). Here is what it looks like inside...

Here is how it is supposed to look:

Here is the broken/bent spring with the detached hook thing:

Here is another shot of the broken one from further back:

Any ideas on how to fix something like this??

Thanks for looking at my post!

Does the square piece have features like a staple? Can it be straightened out and reinstalled with a few small sheet metal screws?

Sometimes you need to move it over slightly so the nails/staples will have fresh/solid wood to attach to. Often the old holes will no longer adequately hold the fastener unless you use a bigger nail/staple.
