It's time for another gummy bear. Take it!
Did you know that in 1981, the Haribo company, which was founded by Hans Riegel, introduced gummy bears to the United States?

ATTENTION: Make sure your workspace is clean before you start working with the heatbed. Use a soft pad underneath (cloth / cardboard) to avoid scratching the heatbed components.
Turn the heatbed upside down.
Undo the four marked screws holding the bed-controller-case.
Take the cover off.
Don't throw the parts away. You will need them later on!

Step 8 Heatbed terminals preparation

Insert the heatbed into the center of the printer as in the picture with the terminals facing down. Keep it in an upright position. Make sure the heatbed cables are accessible below it.
Prepare the power connectors into the indicated layout. Keep the printed part on.
Red (+ / positive) wires are closer to the center.
Black (- / negative) wires are closer to the sides.
Connect the data cable to the center connector.
Attach the power connectors into the terminals and fix them in place using the previously removed screws and the Phillips screwdriver.
Double check you have connected the power cables correctly!

Take off the linear rail stoppers on both inner sides of the printer.
You might have more than two rail stoppers in both bearings. Pull all of them out from the rail.

Step 12 Installing the Heatbed

Take the Heatbed and attach it to the top of the threaded rods. Both of the trapezoid nuts on the sides must engage onto a threaded rod.
Pay attention to the connected cables while you are attaching the Heatbed!
Using your hand, rotate the threaded rods slightly until both of the rods engage into the nut on the side of the Heatbed.

Step 13 Attaching the Heatbed

The Heatbed should now hold onto the threaded rods.
By rotating the threaded rods on both sides, move the Heatbed approximately 5cm below the top of the threaded rods.
Make sure the Heatbed is always as leveled as possible while you are moving it by rotating the threaded rods with your hand.

Take the left Z-axis part and slide it up to the heatbed frame.
Fix it to the heatbed frame with two M3x12rT screws using the T10 screwdriver. Don't tighten it all the way yet!
Now, fix the right Z-axis part to the heatbed frame using the same technique.
Now, tighten all four screws in a cross pattern:
First, tighten the front right and rear left screws.
Then, tighten the front left and rear right screws.

Step 18 Fixing the heatbed cables

Take a look inside the printer. We have to attach the cable chain onto the bottom of the heatbed.
Locate the openings for the cable chain on the back of the heatbed frame.
Attach the cable chain mount to the openings using two M3x20rT screws. Bend the cables slightly if needed.
Tighten up the screws using the T10 screwdriver.
