How do I put a Chainsaw brake back together?

How do I put a Husqvarna 136 chainsaw brake back together. The brake locked being bounced around in the back of a truck. I have it apart, but am not sure how the coiled spring in the handguard is supposed to assemble.

I had the same problem. After several false attempts, I found that when I inserted the star wheel back on the stud, I was able to insert needle nose pliers into the spring to push the spring from the backend in toward the star wheel. The spring bowed up, and then snapped back into the slot. I had to hold the spring in with finger and thumb until I could get the cover back on.
