Where do i put the spring thats about an inch long as when i goto replace the roller

Spring (54) sits vertically in a hole of the plastic base support (32). If you zoom in on the parts diagram, you can actually see this tiny notch in the base support just to the left of the spring. It puts a small amount of pressure on the metal plate of the roller (844), from underneath the metal platen of the belt surface (48).

I had trouble with that too.
