Sounds about right, my car did it once so far (Nov MN meet) and if it doesn't go up on the 92-99 model, you just have to hit it, or pull on it. I think the catch doesn't release all the way, but the smaller one is still there. I shot some lubricant oil into mine and it'* fine in cold weather. I think the spring is just to get it up off the latch. My struts push it up just fine...
