Rebuilding '69 front seat belt retractors / reels?

Hi all

I needed to replace the seat belt retractor covers (Robbins 6715)

To get these off and install new I took apart the retractor, removing the spindle and the brass clip that holds the webbing onto it

Question is - how do you reassemble?..

I cannot get the semicircular brass clip back over the outside of the belt/spindle!

Anyone have a guide, ideally a video to share or walk me through?

I will take a photo later on today

Thank you!!!

I cannot help with re-assembly, but I installed my covers by warming the new covers in water and pulling the belt clips through. Takes some hand strength.
