How to get the rackmounted HP proliant server pushed back in the rack with the rails?

I have an old HP ProLiant ML350 G4 rackmounted server with rails and cable guides in the back.

I managed to get the server to glide out of the rack (needed to get access to the back of server) but how to get it in again?

I've found one release-button on the inside of the rails to get it halfway in, but I really can not find out how to get it all way in.

Since I need to instruct another guy to do the job, I would be happy to find some instructions with pictures.

    If I remember correctly; On the G4 there are levers on the rails and they should be blue. One goes up and the other goes down. They only go one way so it should be easy to figure out which is which. They are at the middle joint of the telescoping arm, right next to the white busing that the server mounted rail goes into. Depress them and the server should move inward. I have seen them stick at times and not depress all of the way. a slight twist to the chassis in the direction the latches move will usually allow the box to slide back in.

    There's a blue slide on the inner rails, I think you push them both backwards but it may be forwards. rails
