can't click into one of my Campy Pro-Fit pedal

I am unable to click into one of my Chorus Pro-Fit pedals. The only difference I can notice between the 2 pedals is that the retaining spring appears to flex down a bit when I try to clamp in.

What's the best way to fix it (or do I need to replace the pedal - again!)?

...btw, the pedals are <1yr old and I just replaced the plastic cleats so that shouldn't be the problem.

Check this first: if you try to click the opposite shoes into the pedals (left shoe into right pedal, etc), which one doesn't work? Should help you isolate whether the pedal or cleat is at fault.

Your local shop should be able to help.

Time to be a smart a$$...

I think your best bet is to use your Campy pedals as paperweights and put some Dura-Ace or Ultegra on your bike. 30,000 miles on one pair of Ultegra pedals without any problems at all.

If you hate Shimano, try Speedplay

Could be the spring, which is replaceable. After trying what James said(great idea, BTW) and if it is the pedal. Take a big honking screwdriver and pry the spring UP. The part that engages the metal part of the cleat. Could be it's so close to the rubber bumper you can't get the cleat under it.
