Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two large sticks at the top, two sticks at the bottom and two holes in the middle. The larger top sticks are going to go into the top metal holes. The smooth part faces away from the keyboard.
