If your wheel fell off there is no shematic that i know of however check to see if the studs are stripped if so pull the wheel ( POP-OFF THE BEARING CAP WITH A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER) unscrew thew wheel nut and pull the wheel (being careful not to drop the bearings on the ground ) then with an old nut or board (2 by 4) or something similar so you don't flare the stud so that it wont go through the hole. drive studs out and replace (fairly cheap). when you put the new studs in make sure that the teeth on the back of the hub line up with the teeth on the studs before you drive them in.if the whole fell off make sure that the threads on the spline (shaft) are not damaged. if so repair the threads and get new bearings . ( bearings only go in one way) and nut and cotter pin. (if you don't know that the race is any good take the hub to the auto parts store and ask the attendant at the counter) when reassembling do not over tighten the wheel nut and BE SURE TO PUT THE COTTER PIN IN AND BEND 1 PRONG BACK.

Mirror fell off and has a spring inside. How do I put it back on right side mirror

You will probably have to replace the mirror as the retainer that holds it on is most likely snapped off and will not just snap back together.

Removed the 4wheel drive unit and kept it out ,installed front wheel bearing and it fell off

The front axles hold the wheel bearings together. You could take the axles apart and just put the outer part of the axle in and it should work.

I removed the tilt steering colum housing to instal a new cruise

The plastic piece goes between the steel rod and cruise/wiper lever. You will have to remove the wheel and the upper bearing housing to get it back where it goes. If you put some wheel bearing grease on it then it will stay in place during reassembly.. Good Luck
