Spray white lithium greese underneath on the spring. I had the same issue and usually happens every other year. Lithium greese cures the problem. And find a cap for the bolt so not to cause damage to the arm. Another trick is take a plastic bag sleeve like what a newspaper is delivered in and slide over the arm to keep the rain off the spring.
