Help!! how do I get this back in??

Gotta do it from underneath I believe. Its a pain, you have to pull the lifter thing out, then slide the drain plug back in and try to find the hole in the drain plug with the lifter. I haven’t done it in a while but I think thats how I did it
There is a metal rod under the sink that needs to slide into that hole.
You might have to pull that lifter rod out a little to slide the plug part back. I'll link a video for replacing the whole thing that will show the parts.
Sometimes you get lucky and can put it in the hole turned to the side then just turn it into place so try that first
I took apart a sink that required the pipe underneath to be detached to remove the drain plug, yea it's a pain in the ass
