Please, someone tell me I did not just waste 6 hours of my life assembling this.  Preflight check list said to make sure nozzle touches hot bed.  I notice the fan shroud is blocking which doesn't seem right. 

 

Please tell me there is a fix that does not involve undoing all the steps from page 130 back to page 70.  I remember this didn't really seem right but if figured it must be, there's not way they'd give instructions that have it end up like this unless it was meant to be like that.

For starters, your heater block assembly needs to be turned 90 degrees so that the red wires are opposite the PINDA probe.  Then the shroud will fit around the heater block and be able to tilt so that is parallel with the build plate.

My guess is that you will have to undo the cable bundle to get enough slack - don't try to force is as you might break a wire and that would be bad news.
