That spring goes vertically into a hole (not visible in the picture, but
very near the upper LED) in the upper end of the left piece in your
picture. When installed correctly, you'll only see the shiny end which
rides on the upper part of the white plastic piece which moves with the
lock/unlock rocker. Taping the lock switch into the neutral position on
the upper side may help during reassembly. Make sure the pin of the in
the middle of the right half ends up in the hole of the small white
piece of plastic.
On the driver's side you have 2 of those springs and 4 pins to mate into
4 holes. (It's not as hard to reassemble as it appears it may be from
Thornhill (near Toronto), Ont.
