My Ryobi power washer chose to run continuously no matter the state of the trigger, so I dug inside to check it out.

The trigger is a spring loaded shaft held on by this "thing," a slotted metal disk that fits around a cut out ring in the shaft to hold the spring down.

About 30 seconds after I took this image the disk went POP and landed I know not where.

Would anyone know what this is called? Perhaps a source? Otherwise I need the whole trigger assembly is $30 from Amazon.

Thank you all for your replies. Unfortunately I could not stop the leak and was left with the "Amazon" solution.

The new handle is due to arrive today.
