If the door is removed from the combo...

Then placed facedown on a table---with the latch/hook on the left side...

The screws can be removed from the door inner cover...

After lifting/separating the inner cover---the latch/hook/spring/pin can be accessed/seen...

The spring tensioner should be facing upward and on the right side of the latch/hook/pin...

When the inner cover is re-installed---the spring will have tension---for correct door handle operation/use.
