Soft roof tension spring

Hi everyone

Please check out the video below of my roof mechanism.

Can you guys confirm if that tension spring is there on both sides from factory?

I need to know if there's a spring on passenger side as well.

The video states that there should be a spring for each side and the first comment lists each spring's part number.

That was me speaking in the video, I just wanted to make sure by having another owner confirm it.
Thanks anyway.

Can anyone help? Where i can get these springs from?
I am told Mercedes Benz started introducing this part as an after thought to resolve a folding issue on these roofs.

I cannot find this part or it's part number anywhere.

Another forum member has them as well.
