    I'm pretty sure that there's still something that you can try. If you have any white vinegar to hand, it may be worth trying to scrub up the springs using a cotton-bud (sold under the brand-name Q-Tips in some countries) soaked with the stuff. There's a video here that shows what happens to some very rusty tools when soaked in white vinegar for 16 hours, but I would imagine that the sort of rust you're dealing with here wouldn't need such a lengthy treatment - you can probably just leave the springs in place and clean them up as described above, rather than taking the device apart and soaking them.
