Dont be disscouraged. Even I have problems getting those lil buggers back together right. Just keep playing with the combinations of the 3 or 4 pieces and it will eventualy work right. If it wont work no matter what you do, they are not expensive. You can buy a new one for less than 5 bucks from your local hardware store.
