Soft top mechanism - auto release of trunk *top bag* not working

Good afternoon, I have a 2010/2011 convertible 9-3. In the trunk, there is a *bag* that countains the soft top once top open, that can be *folded* when you need to put a large suitcase in the trunk when the top is closed.

There is an automatic release system, that unlatch that bag when you try to open soft top and if the bag was closed. It is based on a cable system. Mine does not release that bag. When I investigated that, I found a loose spring and a broken piece of plastic. I believe the spring is supposed to pull back the arm of that latching system when not in use. Would anybody have a detailed drawing or pictures of what this system looks like when not broken? It is located on the right side of the car, below the main soft top pivot system. See pictures

Thank you!!
