My viewfinder cover was still present ;-) and I did have the manual, but if you don't have both, it is likely to go wrong.
Here is a copy of the manual (click to enlarge):

Ya know it's funny I have that hot shoe cover, I always thought it was from something else since I never knew that tab in the front was for the battery door haha, it always looked like it didn't belong to that camera as the tab sticks out in the hot shoe and doesn't fit properly as I would think anyway.

Thanks now I know I have the right thing haha
