I am missing one of the screws that holds one of the legs on
Can you suggest a place where I could find a spare screw that holds the leg on the tripod? The other ones look like a screw that goes into a hollow tube with a phillips head top. Where can I find a replacement as I seem to have lost one of them?

Possibly some bad news for you..., the Part #R190,304 you ordered is not made for the #190XB tripod..., it is for a model several years older (though it MAY fit)..., (see link for correct parts diagram)!!!! http://www.manfrottospares.com/download/pdfs/190XB_20061025.pdf
To easiest way to replace one of the top leg castings is to first remove the centre column and then support the tripod in such a way that the (3) legs are not touching the ground (i.e.: all the weight is supported by the casting through which the centre column would normally mount. You will then need to undo the (3) screw (allen key style) that pierce this casting...., (the reason for wanting to support the tripod via the bottom of this casting is that all the small parts SHOULD stay in place when the top casting is separated from the lower casting. Once this has been done..., carefully remove the leg with the damaged top casting...., replace it (making sure the new one is facing the right direction) & then reverse the procedure.
You need some kind of screws/bolts to hold the broken pieces in place before you can apply glue. At the end of your video, you showed the bottom view of the legs. If you can drill some holes at good positions, you should be able to put bolt and nut to hold the legs in place. Then, you can use super glue to keep the surfaces smooth.
To remove back leg: pull off round end caps where leg connects to back (pressure fit). Then remove black stickers covering screw holes at base of leg. Under stickers are 4 screws - remove and lift off leg assembly.
Remove back cover: remove 7 black screws from back (one hiding under warranty sticker). Lift back from bottom edge (pressure connections on top edge). Back cover will catch on cd/dvd tray door - bend slightly to get around.
Under back cover is metal cover. Remove screws from around edge holding back cover on (note that most screws you will see in pairs - only remove the one holding the metal cover, not the one holding the chassis). Lift off metal cover.
You should now see hdd. One screw holding in position - remove screw, slide out hdd (it will have a metal frame around it). HDD is a 2.5" laptop style.
open the door and there should be two brackets that screw into the counter to hold the top. I would remove lower kickplate and you will find legs that you can move up or down,...I would set your d/w in place and scew the legs up to desired position...Then, screw brackets into top above d/w..this will hold d/w into place..if your happy with my answer. please let me know....thank you,

Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.
You slide in the 2 bent legs, then it doesnt snap. there are supposed to be 2 screws that hold it into place on the top portion of the stand. Find the correct screw size and your stand should keep your monitor up.
