    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.

    When you have found the answer you are looking for, could you select a 'Best Answer'? This will help future readers with similar questions to find the answer that helped you faster.

    Thank you!
