Conclusie

To re-insert the clean, dry porous pad, place it back in the printer housing, and line up the holes on the black plastic base with the holes in the pad. Use the spudger to tuck in the pad underneath the metal lips. Use the spudger to make sure the pad is flush with the metal lips of the housing, and the plastic prongs in the base stick out.
