2004 Lexus ES 330 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 33,000 miles

I recently installed a new cabin air filter. When I disassembled the components to allow me to get into the filter, the glove box door tension device fell into the space to the right, rear of the door. Upuo reassembly of the glove box door, I find I don't konow how to reassemble the tension device. Does the Philips head screw go thru hole C? If not which hole, A or B? In addition does the tension device get mounted with the rib up or down?

THanks for your help.

Where does the other end of the piston attach? The whole piston fell out when I removed the two holding pins. I can't find where the top part of the piston attaches.

Did you disconnect the top part or did it come off by itself?

It came off by itself and I looked but could not figure out where it was supposed to connect.

Thanks!

No, and there is no obvious place where the top attaches. That I can see.

What I found so far is the end that came off just clips on whatever that means, since I dont know what the other end looks like.
