Bathroom switch for light exhuast heater
So I have three switches in one box controlling the light exhaust and heater. The switch for the light wasn't working well so I tried to take it apart and clean all the contacts, but that didn't work. It appears to be the switch mechanism itself. Well I had been to a home depot since the local place was closed and they didn't have the old type of 3-way switches that I have in my bathroom. I didn't feel like trying to piece something together like the guy was trying to have me do. It would have required putting in a larger box and cutting into the wall which I am trying to avoid. Finally made it to my local hardware store and they actually had what I needed. But here is where I didn't think about what I was doing. I didn't take a picture of the how it was wired together before I pulled the switches out and now I can't figure out how I should wire it back up.
I have 4 wires out of the wall.
Three out of the same side are red, white, and black. I do remember that the Red was in the first switch for the light, the white in second for exhaust and the black in the bottom for the heater. The wire on the right I can't seem to figure out where it was and now I'm not sure that I have the correct order for the others. Here are the switches.
Can anyone see how I should have this wired? I know this shouldn't be that difficult, but I don't do much with electrical wiring and it's not something I want to take chances with. The help would be much appreciated. And yes I'm new, so hello all.
edit:fixed:Sorry for the big pics, I'll see if I can reduce them.
