Old Electrolux Discovery II - handle repair help

I've come into possession of this vacuum which had the handle disassembled ahead of time and I'm trying to figure out if I'm missing a piece, because I can't seem to keep the switch pressed against the underside of the handle. I've got the two pieces of the handle, the switch itself and it's housing, the switch slide (the part the you actually touch), and then an 'H' shaped piece of plastic.

I've looked everywhere I could find online for some sort of diagram or pictures but I can't seem to find anything so hoping there's someone here with some experience with this. Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

There are many online parts listings for those old vacuums.
Post the model number.

There is no model number shown anywhere, only a serial number sticker on the back and the "Discovery II" just as shown in your picture. Yours appears to be exactly the same as mine, at least from what I can tell. I have come to realize that the handle I bought was for the rocker switch model instead of the sliding switch, but I haven't been able to find any way to purchase the correct handgrip in any way.
