My Simpkex derailleur has lost spring tension to take up the chain slack. It just flops around, like both springs are not working. I took it apart, and the spring tangs are connected, but I can't figure how to re-wrap it to restore spring function. Its not broken, but without the spring tension, it's pretty useless. It used to work great, but had a little skip when riding in the small rear gear. I'm about to give up, and install a spare VGT-Lux that I have laying around, 🤨
