Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook ?

I have a Toshiba Tecra A3 laptop. The ''l'' key was sticking, so I pried if off. This seems to have cured the sticking problem, but with the keycap came a tiny white plastic spring and I cannot see how to put the spring and key back, so right how I am typing on ''l''s on the bare post. Is there any simple way of getting the key back on, or is some special tool required. I had pried off keycaps before and replaced them without difficulty, but this one defeats me.
