A note on missing springs
Some these days have internal springs (like on my motor) and may not have the correct arm (no hook) for an internal spring.
Does no harm to add one, all it will do is make handbrake lever a little harder to pull.

As Ourkid says, the lever ought to return to the stop when the handbrake released.
If it doesn't, the auto adjust will not work properly.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
