Remove the tool head from the printer by moving the tool head away from the printer.
Press the tool head onto the X-axis carriage, aligning the cutouts on the back of the new tool head. Do not pinch any wires between the mount and the carriage.
Secure it to the X-axis carriage by loosely screwing in the top two screws. Leave the top two screws loose.
Loosely screw in the last screw through the rear of the X-axis carriage.
Tighten the top two screws.
Tighten the rear screw.
Cover the connector with the connector cover and attach it to the X-axis carriage using the three M3 screws and the 2.5 mm hex key.
Channel the wires together going to down the vertical pathway on the cover mount, and try not to pinch any of the wires when securing the cover. Slide down carefully into place, and hold while screwing in.
Note: The cover may not fit on certain tool heads such as the M175 v2.
