If so, that spring underneath the cylinder.
Should be attached to both shoes.

At the moment seems it is floating in the wind by the RH shoe
I think so too!

Not done Clio shoes TBH but on others I have had to hook BOTH springs onto BOTH shoes FIRST, then persuade them to go on as a pair while linked together by the springs, usually using big screwdrivers as levers... not possible to put the springs on afterwards, cos the hooks will not go through the holes.
