This is not an easy repair job. I just finished installing new strings and a spring in my friend's Ernie Ball VP JR 6180 volume pedal.The included instructions were good for the most part. They mention making a small hooking mechanism out of a paper to use for stretching the spring that attaches to both strings. I used a steel mechanic's probe that has a hook on one end. There was enough force to snap the probe in half. Whatever tool you use to attach the spring, make sure to wear eye protection. That hook end of my probe turned into a high speed dart that narrowly missed my face when it flew towards me. This repair will test your patience. I love the smooth action of Ernie Ball volume pedals, but replacing those strings is a pain in the ass.
