Placing space key back

Hello,
I've come to an impasse with my old HP GM321AA keyboard, which I use for my Xbox 360.(Although buying a new keyboard will solve my problem entirely, I'd rather not do that)
Being the fool I am, I decided to pop off the space bar to get rid all the dust that's been building up in there. To my surprise, I couldn't put it back without it feeling clunky (either the metal |_________| bar wasn't fit in right) and wasn't balanced.

How am I able to place the metal bar back and the key to make it feel back to normal? I've been tinkering with this for at least 30 minutes and I got frustrated because the metal bar always fell off. I'm sure I didn't break anything.

Try this site: http://www.laptopkey.com/

It will give you some information about keys replacement. There are some other similar sites that display the mechanism used to secure the keyboard keys.
