MK3s - Tension on extruder idler  

Active Member

Hi there

For the MK3, it was necessary to adjust the tension on the extruder idler. There were two screws for that.

But for the MK3s I have not seen any advice for that step until now. There is only one screw with a spring I could adjust. So, is it still necessary to adjust that for the MK3s, or does the spring this work for me?

Thanks for your advice!

You still need to adjust the clamping force of the idler, using the screw. The deeper you screw it in, the tighter the idler is. On my machine, it works best with the screw top surface is aligned with the side surface of the extruder body.
