how do you get a recoil spring rewound/backin PLEASE HELP

i was wondering if there is a way to rewind the recoil spring / get it back in with out it flying apart because i had to take it apart which i didn't really want to do because i have been through this before and never got it back together. the reason i took it apart was that the spring came unhooked underneath the pulley where it hooks into the plastic. PLEASE HELP. any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Honestly, it just takes time and patience. Get another set of hands to help you. It's easier with two people. One holds the spring and the other guides it in. It's a bear, but it is possible.
