2003 Edge seat back spring broken

Does anyone on here know where the seat back spring is on the driver side 60/40 bucket seat on an '03 Ranger Edge 4x2 Super cab? The lever works fine, there is just no spring pressure to keep the seat from falling backwards when you adjust the seat back.
Pictures of how this mechanism operates would help a lot. I have the seat out and looking at it, I can't tell where the spring is supposed to be. Is it an internal coil spring inside the hinge point, or an external spring that can be seen? My '02 doesn't seem to be the same, and the '08 is different also. Any help out there? Thanks.

From this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhyrroQSL_o

It looks like the springs will be in the seat back, so back will need to be removed.
Both attachment points on the seat back look to be ridged while it is out, so both sides will be spring loaded.

I didn't watch the whole video though

That looks like the seats out of '04 - up Rangers. My '08 seas look like that. the '03 seats are different. But they may have a similar spring mechanism. I've looked at the IPL on the '03 seats and have yet to find a spring in the seat. Thanks for the link, I watched that before I posted this thread.
