Replacing spring on handle assembly of Toro personal pace recycler

I have a 22" Toro model #20332 recycling mower. The mower is two years old. The torsion spring on the handle assembly that helps adjust the speed of the mower has broken and I cn't seem to figure out how to get the old spring off and replace it with the new spring. The spring is located on a brass bar that is positioned in holes located on each side of the mower handles.Does anyone have any ideas how to get this bar out of the channel that it is located in and how also to get the bar disconnected from the handles. Seems like it should be an easy fix but can't get the bar out to replace broken spring. Will appreciate any advice.

Are you talking about the bar that you hold down for the mower to move? If so, just make it flex to one side enough for the other side to pop out of the handlebar and then it's off and you can disconnect the spring.

No I am not talking about that bar. I am referring to the brass bar that is located underneath the handle assembly. It has the spring located on one side of it and the main body of the bar is locked inside of a channel. Both ends of the bar fit into holes in the handles on both sides. I cannot replace the broken spring until I can remove this brass bar from the handles.

Thanks Geogrubb. The part number for the Traction Control Bar from the Handle Assembly diagram is 19-1588 (#14 on the diagram) You will see also the Torsion Spring that I am trying to replace. It is #17 on the diagram. I hope this helps.

No Gary. No one seems to know. I will try some different sites that have more readers.

It looks like that bar that has the spring on just sits in the hole. I don't see anything holding it.

Looks like it's just pressure fitted in. Try sliding bar to the other side. May require a little force.
