Question I need help taking apart a fishing reel

I've got this old vintage trutt o mat fly fishing reel and I think there's a spring broke inside but I can't seem to figure out how to take apart. If anyone knows how please yet me know

It's a trutt o mat dam 4050 made in Germany

Welcome to the forum.

I hope you introduce yourself here Member Introductions - The North American Fly Fishing Forum and stick around.

Release all the tension on the spring in case it is not broken.The spring is just like a recoil on a lawnmower.
Loosen the screw on the side of the reel in the center of the spool.This will release the rest of the tension if there is any.
Remove the screw and carefully twist and loosen the cover that contains the spring assembly.If it will not twist loose then you may have to remove the nut on the opposite side of the reel to loosen the spring assembly.
You should be able to lift the cover enough to see under it without removing it completely at first.
The spring will pop out if it is broken so be careful and don't let it hit you in the eye.
If it is not broken you should be able to see how it is attached to the pinion assembly.Usually connected to a slot or a hole on the pinion.
You should be able to remove the end connected to the pinion assembly and lift the spring assembly from the reel.
