Saturn model 1 - open button reassembly?

by Pausebreakalex Fri Feb 20, 2015 12:22 pm

Hi, I opened up my Sega Saturn Model 1 (oval buttons and access light) and took apart the top of the case so that I wouldn't get any of the springs wet.

Now it's dry and I'm putting it back together, but I can't figure out how to reassemble the button that flips open the lid! I've posted pictures of where I'm at currently and what parts I have left, please help me!

I can look at mine later today and see if I can take pictures.

Oh, I remember disassembling that once and it was a pain to figure out how it went back together.

Not much help, but here's how it looks assembled:

You can see that the white lever and the spring goes to the bottom, then the steel plate, then the transparent plastic. The straight end of the spring is pushed to the little claw on the steel plate in its bottom corner, so I'm guessing that the center of the spring goes onto the little pin, and it grabs the other part of the white lever somehow.
