    Hi,

    I bought a brand new Lite6 and wanted to assemble it. But it seems the wiki is not updated to the current parts.

    With my parts, the thermistor has to be tighten on the buttom side. But I can't put the screw there, because of the nozzle (see picture). How can I tighten it correctly?

    There was also a part in my set, that I don't know what to do with. It is the black part on the left. Can somebody tell me, what to do with this?

    There should be a tiny grub screw included... It is really tiny so maybe it is still in the bag?

    All parts are in the picture. There is a tiny black screw that fits in the hole. But not together with the nozzle...

    Here is a pic of what I got when I ordered a heater block, this was before the new cartridges have been released and this was a V6 PT100 block, but do you see the grub screw?

    I recommend to contact E3D support by mail... I am sorry but I think if it is a packaging error they will help you fast...

    Thinking about the parts it looks like the second screw and the washer are still from the old style where you had such a screw and the washer to fix the old thermistor to an old block...

    Yeah that's an old style fixings bag. Where'd you get the hotend from?

    Thanks for your answers. It is from youprintin3d in germany.
    They are sending the right screws now.

    But another question: Is the manual from the Wiki right or do I have to do other things to get the Hotend and thermistor to work with Marlin?

    I am asking because of the new thermistor :)

    I have no experience myself but only the "packaging" changed, not the sensor itself. It is still the same thermistor it has just a different format so that for all three options for temp sensors the same heater block can be used...
