   •   Carefully remove the parts assembly.




   •   Gently tap the retaining pin to expose its
       head.




   •   With your finger holding the lever-piece in,
       pull the pin the rest of the way out. Slowly
       allow the lever-piece to raise up, and
       remove it. Do this carefully, as there is a
       spring underneath.

   •   Flip the latch over and reassemble it. Start
       by setting the spring down into into its
       retaining hole.




   •   Continue the reassembly by laying the
       squared tab of the lever-piece on top of
       the spring and then gently pushing the
       piece down into the latch until you are
       able to insert the pin through the latch and
       lever-piece, holding it all together.
       Visually inspect the latch from the side to
       ensure that the spring is still vertical and
       is not kinked or bent sideways.




   •   Slide the latch into the lock. Pinch the
       lever-piece inboard.

   •   This will allow you to slide the latch all
       the way into place.




   •   Re-insert the smaller spring into the lock
       piece, and slide it back into place.




   •   Re-insert the larger spring into the back
       of the lock, and set the backing plate
       onto the two springs. The smaller tab
       goes into the smaller spring and the
       larger tab into the larger spring. Push
       down while keeping the springs on their
       tabs.

   •   Now re-insert the two screws on either
       side of the lock.
