Took my rear caliper off for cleaning and noticed one of the pads was "loose" in there. The pad didn't fall out, but it just flops around. Is there some kind of spring that can be replaced in there to hold the pad in place or is it time to get a new caliper?

The illustrations on that link are old, the springs don't have the little circle ends anymore on the stock Avid pads...the new ones are a fairly symmetric "H" shape now.
