Dewalt 303m sawzall repair - with pics!


My friend gave me this sawzall with the spring loose and I don't know how to reinstall it. Any ideas? If anyone could show me a pic of theirs with the spring installed that would be really helpful. Thanks!

Here's a pic of the whole assembly to give you an idea of the model:



This is a pic of it disassembled to get access to the spring. The spring is a little bent but it might still work, idk.



Here's a new spring:

I went to the local big box and viewed a similar saw to see how the spring is installed. I still couldn't figure it out because I think there's a lot more wrong with the saw besides that spring. All I know is that the one big hook on the spring goes in the hole seen in the second pic for the blade release lever. Not sure what the small hook attaches to.

I think it's time to go get a Milwaukee! Thanks for the help guys!
