Actually 3 parts but the gear is hard to get out, picture here: https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/fGoAAOSwFtphlTbE/s-l1200.jpg

The metal part goes back in first, it has a tab that faces down and locks into a slot in the gear part, AND the slots in the center of both are lined up, that's what the key cylinder slides into

The plastic "cover" goes in over the metal part and has "tabs" that should snap into place again center slot is lined up

Does this look right? Easier to put in all together or separate pieces??
