Extruder trouble during assembly

In screwing in the X-carriage-back, I couldn't get it to meet the other piece, and I think it caught on something, and ended up snapping.

So now I can't screw in the bottom screw, and I'm worried the extruder isn't sitting flat:

Any tips or help would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm happy to answer any questions or give more detail if needed.

Best Answer by JoanTabb:

The pictures seem squashed...

is the bottom bearing centred in it's housing?

regards Joan

Yeah, sorry I took those pictures vertically, and looks like the forum wants them to be horizontal so it squished them.

I think you were right, I re-sat the bearing and had more luck. I replaced the nut and bolt with a zip tie to hold the piece in place instead (since the part that houses the nut snapped off). Not ideal, but I'm able to print now! Just completed my first print.

Thanks so much for your help!
