Help reattaching glove box door spring (92 300e)

Hey everyone. I found a curious device behind my glove box today, part no: 124 689 27 14 . As far as I can tell it is a spring to slow the opening of the glove box door. I can only assume that this mechanism has been broken since we bought the car since I always remember the door plopping open. The device itself looks like a pistol but instead of a barrel it has a thin plastic chain that (when not broken) connects to the right (when facing the front) glove box door retention mechanism (that keeps the door from opening past the horizontal.) Does anyone know where this device is supposed to be mounted? I have searched the area behind the glove compartment door but I can't find a suitable place to attach it. Thanks!

Isn't the rest of the chain hanging off where it attaches on the other end?

These always break (at least mine) but the remains should still be there on both ends.

Sorry I should have clarified. I know where the chain from the spring housing connects but I do not know where to mount the spring housing itself. I found it loose sitting underneath my speaker.

Nm I found it. The housing clips upside down so that the flat base attaches to the dash right underneath the front left speaker mounting hole. The hook at the rear of the housing slips through a hole in the dash and the same screw that is used to secure the speaker is used to secure the housing. I used a zip-tie to reattach the spring to the door.
