I guess I was not clear about the spring.  The spring I'm talking about
is the one attached to the bottom of the main diaphragm.  The old
diapharam material looks brittle and a new one comes with the kit.  The
spring/ diapharam combination is pressed together and is not able to be
separated. 

On a different note, I obviously do not have VW tool 328d that pre loads
the "rocker arm the proper 14 mm (from flange face) bringing the
diaphragm to the required assembling position".  How can I accomplish this?

Thanks again!

Steve
