Don't worry -- it is common for these to pop out. It looks like none of the tabs broke, so that's good. Here's how to reinstall:

- Rehearse the installation without the spring; learn how it goes together first.
- Make sure you get the tabs in the correct tracks -- there are two sets.
- Once you can do it without the spring, attach the spring to one side (car or loose piece, I can't remember which) with the plastic rod in the spring's center.
- Attach the other end of the spring and you're done.

btw Don't let people sit on the car, that's how my cover came off last time.
