Hi and Welcome to the community,

Are you talking about the small guide that goes at the back left side of the printer?

Normally you should put it at 90° and rotate it. You may need to apply some force to put it in place.

But it's not a mandatory item, personnaly i don't use it at all because to me it adds some unnecessary friction to the filament and doesn't really help to guide the filament better.

I would like to back @Didierklein. Without dual extrusion it isn't really necessary.

Sometimes it is a bit of a tight fit, but you might as well could leave it out.
