    The shroud retainer spring is shot and the tip looks bent. You twist the shroud same direction to install and remove.

    If the copper tip is bent chances are the threads in the tip holder are also shot so you might need to change that too; all the parts are listed here.

    You don't need a new swan neck unless the whole thing is defective. You just need the bit at the end, called a gas diffuse and a fresh contact tip which screws into this, you may also require a gas shroud.

    The spring should come as part of a new gas diffuser.

    The spring will not come with the diffuser.
    It is a separate item.

    The manufacture will give you the details of the torch and parts.
    You can then buy from them, or a decent supplier here or near you.

    If the tip screwed out of the diffuser with no trouble you should be good to go. Just get a retainer and tip and go from there.
