My window regulator assembly went out of place. Need help!

I messed up trying to replace my door handle. Listening to two videos made me accidentally remove my window regulator assembly and I thought it would've been easy to put back together. I have no clue if im doing it wrongly or i just need to put more force into it. I pushed in the springs with the plastic beneath it and had a helper try to put the loosened cable into place but for some reason one end of the blue cable is not going into its wheel. I don't know if i just need to pull on the wire some more but at that point it just feels like there's no more left to pull. I have pushed those springs all the way in where the coils are pressed against each other and cannot be pressed down anymore. I have noticed the blue cable goes under the black cable so could this be an issue? Thanks again for anyone who replies.

Usually the regulator will have a roller on 3 corners and the pivot lock attachment on the 4th corner. Take that pivot lock off, get the cables dressed through the 3 corner roller/pulleys, then put the pivot lock corner back on. I circled it in red in this picture.

I've never taken the one on the G35 apart before but it looks like the same process on every other regulator I've worked on.

And yes there's no way in hell you're getting that high tension cable to go back over the pulley without removing the pivoting corner lol. Not without substantially damaging the plastic wheel anyways.

Worked like a charm! Thanks for the help I truly appreciate it. I have to ask one more question though. Is there a lube specifically for window railings? I moved it around too much and in the picture you could see the side I was working on the lube was being rubbed off. Also would cabling matter in this case? I've seen other pictures where the blue cable would go under the black cable but I can't seem to navigate the cable that way.

According to the bolt's that hold the window motor in place you've got it sitting upside down so that's probably why you see the cable on the "wrong side", it shouldn't matter however because it only crosses the opposite cable, just make sure where those two cables meet and make an "X" that you pad between them, if the factory foam isn't in the correct place and falls off then just wrap around the cable a few times with duct tape or something to keep them from rubbing on each other.

Use white lithium grease to lubricate everything, it's not petroleum based and will not damage the plastic.
