Earlier, I posted a problem about the shuttle driver that holds the bobbin in my machine. I took it apart to replace the bobbin and cannot, for some reason, get it back together. And although someone did respond and give me a picture to look at and a website to go to, this did not solve the problem, as my machine doesn't have the quick set bobbin. There are 3 pieces, the little metal bobbin holder, the metal piece that it attaches to and then the cover that goes over that and has 2 arms that snap onto it to hold it all in the machine. I cant remember where to put the thread from the bobbin through the holder and also get it in the proper place. Can anyone help me please?? Thank you so much.

Good that you included the photo...
The 2 pieces look like the hook and the retainer ring that hold the bobbin.
The piece to the left is the hook ... one to right the retainer ring. The bobbin fits into the hook.
There is a diagram below that should help.
The two black 3/4" long levers need to be twisted outward...then put the hook in ... followed by the retainer ring .... and then twist the two levers back.
Generally the two parts will only fit in a certian way to be able to successfully twist the levers back ... could be some trail and error
I tried posting another diagram but fixya would not upload it ... I will post this answer and then try to add the second diagram
Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.
I take it you have a shuttle with a bobbin inside. Remove bobbin and attach it to the bobbin winder by the balance wheel, wind bobbin and while holding shuttle point downwards drop the into the shuttle, pull thread down to the bottom of side slot and then straight up under tension spring, load shuttle back into machine pointed towards you tension screw up
Has your machine worked before? Check that it is the correct bobbin and bobbin case. Although,if it is the spindle that is sticking out through the bobbin case, that is the shuttle. Perhaps the shuttle is not seated correctly.
Otherwise, it would probably be good to take it for service.
Ok, hang on! This can get tricky! Remove the bobbin. Remove the presser foot and the needle. Remove the throat plate. This gives you plenty of room to monkey with your bobbin case. NOW, lay the bobbin case in its correct area and gently rotate it until it falls into place. It may take several tries. Once you're satisfied that it's secure, snap the holding clips into place and it should all fit nicely. THEN place your bobbin in the case correctly...check the diagram in the manual. Depending on the machine, some bobbins have the threads coming off counterclockwise and others have them coming off clockwise, but your manual should show. Sometimes, there's even a diagram on the throat plate or the bobbin case as well. Good luck. Hope this works. If this solves your problem, please come back and rate my answer!
The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.
