HELP! step 28 just ends how do I insert the new one, how do I resemble the parts that used adhesives to stick?

Tom - 답글

Nearly all the guides end like this, you just need to work backwards through the steps using the new hardware.

Dave Davidson -

Just work backwards like Nick stated. I usually reverse assemble the parts I take off so I know the order in which I need to put them back in.

Sturgis Baxter -

Just run it along its track. Use a plastic spudger to push it down. Use 3m double sided adhesive tape to re-attach parts that require adhesive.
