I will try.
Kind regards

You need to first swap the two incorrect 3c corners to fix them. Then you need to do two swaps for triangles in two orbits. Although you cannot do one swap in a single orbit, it turns out you can do two of them simultaneously: Let A and B be two adjacent edges sharing one vertex. (A,B)*3 does the jobs. Please examine which two orbits this algorithm affects and apply it in the correct spot. Then you can use your old algorithms to do even permutations within orbits.
