The four screws from the rear are not stripped so that they cannot be tightened properly.
Fasten the welding shoe (5) onto the welding shoe holder (17) with fastening screws (20) or the four screws at the rear
Place the welding shoe holder (17) over the extruder nozzle (19). Make sure that the welding shoe is far enough back so that it overlaps all the way around or air will leak behind the welding shoe holder.
If at any time air is coming out behind the shoe, loosen the clamp screws (18) and turn the welding shoe holder one way and then the other while pushing the welding shoe holder further back. Tighten the clamp screws (18). If air continues to leak, replace the shoe.
The welding shoe (5) can be turned to any desired welding direction by loosening the clamp screws (18)
