Default Door Latch Replacement | Must be Missing Something Obvious

1997 Volvo S90

I replaced the little arm on the front drivers side door latch, and am having trouble getting everything back together. I can get everything in place, but the little lever stays in.

I checked to make sure the replacement arm is the same size as the old one (it is):


The wire that goes through the hole is in the door as shown below:


From the driver seat the wire is situated as shown below:


When I pass the wire through the lever/arm, it is situated as shown below:


With everything together, the arm stays in:


This is in contrast to the way it was before (rear drivers side latch shown here):


I can still open the door, but need to push the latch lever towards the car, as shown in this video.


I would think that the wire needs to be adjusted, but the part I replaced is the same as what broke.

Fixed it.
The little lever can be mounted two ways. I assume this is so the latch can be used on the driver or passengers side of the car.
In any case, I had it mounted the "upside down".
