What replacement parts should I use for a Prusa MK2.5?

A friend of mine has a MK2.5 - no S. His hotend parts need to be reprinted and I'm not sure what parts I should download from the replacement parts page:

https://www.prusa3d.com/prusa-i3-printable-parts/

They have the MK2.5S upgrade kit parts, but no replacement parts explicitly for the MK2.5.

Does anyone know what is the right part to download for this printer?

Best Answer by Ian:

I think you're saying you want the 2.5 extruder, not a 2.5S extruder.

The 'Original Prusa i3 MK2S - MK2.5 upgrade' files included the whole 2.5 extruder (and X carriage), I believe.

RE: What replacement parts should I use for a Prusa MK2.5?

to the best of my knowledge the Mk2.5S uses Mk3s Parts including the little wedgie bit that confuses Mk3s Owners...

the Mk3S, uses virtual endstops on X & Y axis... the Mk2.5 uses physical endstop switches. the X Axis, for the Mk2.5S  needs an extension part to reach the endstop switch, thispart is quite small and is hekd in place by one 3mm allen screw.

I try to make safe suggestions,You should understand the context and ensure you are happy that they are safe before attempting to apply my suggestions, what you do, is YOUR responsibility. Location Halifax UK...
