Success! Thanks to Doru for initiating this DIY for us with I6 engines. Just wanted to confirm same steps and parts. In hindsight, we could have just changed the spring (and the washer) but I ordered all the parts anyway. I did "soak" the spring and the piston, which made the re-installation very tricky as it was very slippery. Attached are the pics of the new and old parts, plus the tools I used.
