Assembling shifter levers

Hey, I made a dumb mistake and took something apart without remembering how it went together. I got the right shift lever on, but the left one is different (probably due to it being Suntour Symmetric, which I believe trims the front der). I'm running out of ideas fast, and I'm doing a bit of damage to the washer and cap which says Suntour Japan. Anyone know the order that these go onto the shifter lever holder? The thing these fit onto is threaded on the inside and has an exterior the shape of the rectangular holes on the top two pieces (see below). Also, if you happen to know the correct order for the right lever, I'd like to know that too, because I may have goofed that up even though it seems to work. I think the right one is all the same except it doesn't have the top left piece (if that's not the case then it doesn't have the top right).

Here's what I'm dealing with (also note that on the bottom right circular cap, on the left of it there's a tab similar to the tab on the piece to the left of it):

I should add that the lever is symmetrical in that it has a recessed circular part and a tab on the opposite side as well. Also, there's a very thin washer that fits into the shifter lever, but I don't know which side that goes into.

I just bought a new one. I lost a tiny (probably fairly unimportant) washer, bent the caps on the outside, and wasted far too much time on this. If anyone needs to know how to assemble this some time, revive this or PM me and I'll diassemble the new one and pay attention to how it goes together and then write something up.
