Doesn't look like your model was recalled, but you could always contact the manufacturer to confirm since the baby's safety is your priority. Below is an article I found with the affected serial numbers.
Kolcraft bassinets recalled due to fall dangers Consumer Reports News: May 09, 2012 04:38 PM

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a safety recall for certain bassinet models made by Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., of Chicago, Ill. The Kolcraft Tender Vibes and Light Vibes bassinets have locking latches which may fail and cause the bassinets to fall, possibly injuring a child inside.
The CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches detaching from the bassinet frame. In one of those incidents, one infant received a bruised cheek when the bassinet fell from its metal frame and landed sideways on the floor with the infant inside.
Consumer Reports experts note in our buying guide to bassinets that for now, there are no federal guidelines for those pieces of infant furniture other than safety standards for such items as small parts and rough edges. So, a baby crib-which must meet federal safety standards-is the safest place for a sleepy infant say our experts. (For more information, see Crib alternatives to avoid and Safe-sleeping tips in Consumer Reports' Babies & kidssection.)
This current recall involves about 46,000 Kolcraft bassinets which were sold at mass market and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012. The recalled Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets include model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER and KB039-CMR1 and the Kolcraft Light Vibes bassinet recall is limited to model number KB043-BNT1. (Model numbers are printed on a label located on the side of one of the metal frame legs of Kolcraft bassinets.)

You start by providing enough info for someone to help you. We would need to know what model you have and what needs repair. Hope you were able to fix the issue.

Hello New Grandparents. I hope that you were able to resolve your issue before the baby came for a visit.

I am not sure about the extra parts without more info or images, but the bars and hooks should have been metal bars that were attached to the inner top bar of the bassinet side rail. After you raise the side, they are free to move to the hooks that are screwed into the hard pressboard bottom. Pic is attached from the manual. You would have to lift the fabric up to see these pieces. Perhaps that was the issue during assembly.

Hi there, I would hand wash it. Sunlight soap is the best and give it a good soak and rub with your hands and the marks should come out. DON'T put it in the washing machine, so many websites say just machine wash but I don't recommend it. I saw someone trying to sell a second hand hood once and it had completely skewed out of shape. They don't take long to wash/ rinse until water clean and squeeze hard and dry in the shade. Don't put any cleaning substances/ upholstery cleaners on it, Sunlight soap is the all time favourite for this sort of thing and gets most marks out. If you don't know what Sunlight soap is then any pure soap or baby friendly detergent/ washing soap would do (any with a picture of a baby on it.

I too have this bassinet and went looking online for a 'how to' on removing to wash. What I found was the manual, I will post the link below. In the manual it does say that the fabric cannot be removed from the canopy frame.

you have to either turn off your pop up blocker for this manual or hold down "control" when clicking the link for it
