The clips over-simplified the whole proceedure.

Apart from the rubber hoods issue, I feel that it was well edited. We saw him(?) applying white grease to the G springs, and then fitting the thingy into the unit. Then he put in the next bit.

I know you can't do it as easily as that. The other bit that goes on top of the bit with the G springs in, has to be pushed hard to overcome the spring resistance. I wouldn't mind betting that the film editor took out the G springs first!

In order to get those bits in, I had to assemble the bits with the G springs compressed, then carefully lower the whole lot into the main unit.

Nevertheless, a very good teach-in, and well worth watching over and over before doing it yourself. That way you won't have SPS. (Sweaty Palms Syndrome)

The old YouTube movie doesn't work any more, but I've found this one instead.

I made a tool for hooking the g-spring into place and holding the tension (the bit where you need 3 hands, all 1/10th the size of mine), by cutting the handle bit of a bulldog clip in two to prove an L-Shaped piece of strong "wire" that I could then use to hold the tension during assembly.
