They should not have popped out.
If you hold one of the springs in your hand with the curved part at the bottom, the longer side goes up against the moveable toe pedal. The shorter side has a tiny tab at the top, and that goes into a tiny slot on the back side of the larger fixed foot pedal and that is what holds the spring in place.
Just another reason to hate the dam things!
