I had to remove the screen protector too before installing into the cover. The protector was too big too get it off afterwards. Just take care with LCD until you are finished building.
Same with me too. I had two extras from a previous step. I keep winding up with extra screws or missing some so I keep second guessing myself thinking I screwed up somewhere.
Can someone explain the purpose of this plug? Is it just for looks or does it serve a function?
If you have clumsy hands like me go ahead and put the PTFE tube in into the filament cover. It will stay in place that way when your putting the cover on instead of flying across the room when your hands slip.
I can confirm I had the same issue as Steven. Moving all zip ties to the top fixed the issue.
Check to make sure the nylon fits now before putting the cover on. My hole was too small.
I recommend before installing this piece check to make sure that the longest piece of nylon in the box fits into the hole right above where the single fits. My hole wasn’t big enough or the nylon swelled and I had to take the extruder assembly back off to fix it. Checking now will save work later on.
The part “Don’t use the second slot in the Y-belt-idler” might need to be corrected. I’m assuming you mean the second slot in the Y-belt-holder, not idler.
I’m not really sure what the red circle with the X in the last picture is suppose to mean but it makes it seem like the circle facing up is wrong. Maybe just putting a arrow pointing at the circle on the part would be better.
Make sure you have enough M5x16 screws. I was shorted 4 screws and had to use all of the available spares.
