Canon i960 and iP8500 purge unit scraper spring?

Canon i960 and iP8500 purge unit scraper spring?

On the i960 and the iP8500 is there supposed to be a rebound spring for the white scraper blade. This is the finely wound straight spring that is bent in the middle by the small arm on the top of the plastic scraper blade.

The i560, i950, ip3000, ip4000, and the ip5000 all have a rebound spring for the plastic scraper blade located at the top front of the purge unit.
The pictures below are from an ip5000 (taken by Dobermann) and the yellow arrows show where the spring would be located.
