Go to the Andis website and look under the services section, find your clipper model and they will have an exploded view diagram of your clipper with each part listed and directions on where each part goes.
But costomer reviews in amazon.com who take braun series 3 combi 30B foil and cutter replacement pack is fits to Braun8985 perfectly, very smooth and close shave. Shaves much better than the Braun 51S screens foil.
John! No Problem!
First put the bigger of the two blades witht the size/number facing down, put the cutter on top. (with the side with the flat side of the teeth facing down) Then put the tongue guide inside the tension spring, make sure the tension spring rail is on the tension rail and place them on top of the cutter. To see which bits these are go to: http://www.sheareaseltd.com/clipper-blade-sharpening/clipper-blades-the-parts
This picture whows the front and back, it differs slightly from your blade, but its same meat different gravy!
Hold all this together with your finger and thumb, flip it over and scre the whole lot together! www.sheareaseltd.com

I followed the instructions from Nick123456 for taking the shaver apart, cleaned all areas and oiled everywhere I could see moving parts around the motor. Then I put it back together making sure that the side screws were very tight. It is now much quieter and the shave seems OK but not brilliant. (Sorry about the typos in the original posting).
i had the same problem and i fixed mine ( it is not broken) ... the tongue is the thing that is silver and has grooves that face upward, the tongue should be up compared to pressed against the shave, take a small screw driver or a kitchen knife and get under the tongue and lift it up, once this is done you need to slide it on the blades and snap it down, i found that i did not need to have the clippers on to put it back on.... at first i got confused in thinking that the tongue was the red thing at the top, and in actuality this is the thing that moves the blades to clip.... i hope this helps, once you get the tongue up the blades are on in 10 seconds...
