The way to test if it works is to wind it in, lock it, release it while your finger squeezes against it to hold it from completely coming out in one shot, press against it and every 1/8" that it comes out try to push it back in - it should not push back in and it should come out pretty smooth and not hang up.

If it still works fine there's absolutely NO reason to replace it.
