Heard a crack when wife opened the blind, alas clip point is cracked.
I guess that will be a whole new blind cassette, why are they so flimsy, bound to get brittle with age even 6 years!!!!
Looks worse on the picture, could do with a good clean I know.
How does this spring load is my real puzzle, if I could get it back together?🤔

I wonder if you might be able to fix the cracked plastic with some Sugru...

Had the same issue in our first van and managed to pull the two pieces back together with a cable tie as a temporary repair at first but it worked so well it became permanent! Can't remember step by step how I re-loaded the spring (it was fiddly) but think it was just down to gripping the square end within the jaws of an adjustable spanner and rewinding it until sufficiently tensioned then engaging it within the slot and all was good.
