So this is the direct front of the camera it reads "Vebur" underneath,
This is the shutter loader thingimajig. I'm not sure what the name is, but you have to pull that back in order to take the picture.
And in this picture you can see the shutter release on the right, it's the little metal nub. I initially thought that the screw under the shutter loader would need to be undone to be able to release the shutter, but I tried undoing it with the right screwdriver size and it's almost impossible. The metal gets in the way and I worry that I might scratch the screw.
The problem is that sometimes the shutter release doesn't work, or gets stuck at the top. It worked briefly, but then started to get stuck (which is my Dad put it on eBay in the first place).
After some fiddling (just repeatedly trying to take photos, and pushing the shutter release) I even managed to get the timer working again. 250, 100, 50, 25, and 10 worked reasonably well enough (I think they were working to the right times), but as soon as I put the speed to 5, the shutter started getting stuck and delayed before it finally released. Same for the 2, 1 and B settings.
