Manfrotto 055 Carbon Fibre c/w horizontal column

On pulling out the central column of this tripod, the sleeve and ring "exploded" into bits. I have all the parts, but there is a small black wedge which I'm unsure as to how or where it fits. The red metal sleeve now slides up too early, i.e. before the central column is fully extended, so guess the black wedge held it in place until the end of the column pulled it up.

Does anyone know of a link to an assembly diagram. I know you can by the sleeve, ring and wedge as a set on the Manfrotto website, but no idea how they fit together.

I did exactly the same thing with mine a few months ago. I got it back together after a bit of trial and error. I attach a picture which hopefully shows how I got the bits back together.

Thank you both for your replies - I will see if I can put it together. It was just the black plastic wedge I couldn't work out where it fitted - the red sleeve pops up "too early" without it Thanks will let you know how I go.
