without pics I'm sure my plea is worthless, that being said I'll post some shortly when I return home.

In an attempt to further troubleshoot my missing clock (I already checked and needlessly replaced the fuse) I removed the actual switch assembly from the ignition. There is a small set screw on the side of my ignition that when removed allows for the plastic assembly to drop out of the bottom of the ignition cylinder.
This assembly is a plastic cylinder, and I intended on spraying it with contact cleaner. It clips together, much like a wire connector. When I took it apart, I had it upside down, and a couple of metal bits fell out onto the floor. I retreived them all, but have no idea now how the assembly should go back together. I'm hoping someone here has been there before and can lend me a hand. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'll post some pics of the bits soon.
Even non helpful replies are welcome- things like, "it'll be ok!" or "you can do it!".
Thanks in advance,
