After a further 30 minutes of fiddling, and firing the spring right across the room and losing it (temporarily), I have got it back together and working. However it doesn't look to secure with the short end of the spring at an angle to the hinge etc. I am thinking that the small retaining peg, having eventually worked out what this little lug was for, has either been worn or deformed so that the corner of the short arm is not fully held in place.
Anyway the whole thing is now back in the car and hopefully the spring assembly will not fall apart the first bump I go over.
