Default Handbrake? Or shock absorber?

306 giving clink from rear... Suspect spare wheel, but found this spring looking unhappy... Lots of slack in mechanism. What does it do? Is there something missing? It's on offside, near handbrake, next to shock mounting... Many thanks

It's the brake load sensor spring. Depending on the weight loading in the car it compensates the amount of braking pressure to the rear axle.
But it looks in correct condition and position.
Need to look elsewhere
