If you have the couch I remember it is fairly simple. Examine the folding part and note that it fits into the back, and folds out over the seat. If this is true in your case there can only be a couple bolt holes that allow the folding frame to pull out toward the front ahd leave the matress side up. (If you did'nt take the fram apart) Lay one side on the floor and place the top and attached back, front skirt, and seat into their respective locations, (should be obvious). Now measure the distance between the bolt holes in the folded up matress frame, about three on each side, and there should be an obvious pattern relating to them on the side frame. Use all the obvious fastners, take the remainder starting with the shortest and place them into their logical locations. Place the remaining side on top of all this and put the remaining bolts and nuts on. Set the couch on the floor and see if the couch dosen't turn into a bed, TA DA!
