The spring does form a complete circle inside the ferruled part of the line. If it doesn't, it is damaged. If it does, use some PAG oil and your disconnect toll and work with it to get old corrosion out of it.

these springs can sometimes collect some dirt and rust in them giving you a bit of a headache reconnecting them. the spring does need to make a complete circle inside the connector. if not could be broken or bent giving you trouble as well.
