After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Are you talking about the spring on the clutch pedal? If so, it's an assist spring. I had to remove mine because it would stick the pedal to the floor unless I had it backed all the way off.

Yeah, that's not a return spring, it's an assist spring. I wouldn't worry about it unless your clutch is really hard to actuate.

yea the overcenter spring on the clutch pedal most of the time gets eliminated. the way they are designed is at the top of the travel the spring is pushing the pedal back up, but once it gets past center on its pivot it puts force down on the pedal to make the clutch feel softer. the problem is once you start messing with the clutch setup in any way they usually dont work that well. often times a performance clutch is designed in a way that gives a lighter pedal but more holding power, and what happens is the over center spring is too stiff and the clutch pedal sticks to the floor, or it comes part way up. most of the time people just eliminate it, it gives a more "raw" clutch feel.
