One for me please!

I have installed the mod today, but for some reason the chest does not seem to open or close...
I have followed HarryHoudini's instructions, but still it does not seem to work for me.
I attach some pics - where to start to diagnose, what went wrong?

Also in my installation the bracket touches a bit the clear plastic piece that apparently is there to protect
or to ensure no ball locks would take place. I draw a yellow arrow there. What have you done, have you
removed it altogether?

Thank you for any help!

Only the rod moves and the chest a bit. Have a look here:

Thanks for the tips!

Rotating the 4-wing arm 180 degrees did the trick. Now the lid opens and closes correctly.
The leds are glowing yellow color, I guess that is correct and they will display red at some other time? Or should I adjust the color to red as a default?

There seems to be another problem developed now though. Treasure Chest multiball does not seem to be able to start. Have a look at the video:

Any ideas what the correct here? Thank you!

Quoted from vireland:

Either you accidentally bent the release arm away from the tiny coil a little too much when installing the hinge bracket (you can bend it back a little more towards the coil post so the coil can "grab it" and pull the door flap open) OR you need to increase the chest release time on the system menu so it holds the flap open a little longer.

Thank you, will experiment more tomorrow!
