A small black tab and a small bar with a tiny hook fell out of the printer, now the paper doesn't feed right. Where do I snap these pieces back in?

I had the same problem with my HP photosmart 7450. It started with frequent paper jams, to the point where it happened everytime it pulled the paper in to print. I had the rattle also, turned it upside down and the pin fell out, just like yours. I'll bet it's happening to many other 7450's. Anyway, I was able to repair it myself.
The pin attaches to a small black plastic gear, about 1/2 in. in diameter, in the paper feed roller, (on the right side, and not visable from the front). I had to remove the misc. covers, several screws attaching different things, includind the sliding ink absorber on the right side, (that was fun) to where I could see the loose gear. This was no easy task. I'm an auto mechanic, so I enjoy a challenge. However, as much as I like the printer, I was ready to toss it in the dumpster if I couldn't figure it out. First you'll need a small "torx" screwdriver or two, as well as some other basic tools. If you're patient, good with your hands and have a good sense of how things work, you can probably repair it yourself also. Let me know if you're successful.
Good luck!.....Ron J........ firstname.lastname@example.org

Those pieces go on the clean station and can easily be replaced. They each fit over a stud where the printhead parks and just press on.When they are missing the ink will dry out on your ink cartridges and the machine won't be able to clean them properly.
