I can't figure out how to finish the second layer without destroying what I have :(

I've finished the second layer and the yellow face but I've got one piece left on three sides in the last layer:

And now I'm stumped.

Put the orange face at the back (I'm assuming it's the intact one) and do this move: R2 U R U R' U' R' U' R' U R'.

I'd agree that it could be a z-perm if it weren't for the fact that he stated that only 3 sides were messed up. That square on the green looks orange, but must be red, or 4 faces would be scrambled (as you can clearly see that red, blue and green must be scrambled in some way). That means that one of the other 2 faces must be complete. Simple logic leads you to only one conclusion - the orange being complete, and that leads to that alg I gave. Must have worked. The guy said it fixed it. :D
