Z-Axis Too High

Mini+, Trying to run first calibration, and my Z-axis is too high, even at -2.000. I used the credit card method for adjusting the MINDA, and was still too high. I then used a folded up piece of paper, still too high. I get an okay rectangle, but I can still see minor gaps in the lines. And when I pull the rectangle up, I can spread the lines apart very easily. I can't go any lower with the MINDA unless I put it right up against the heat shield.

Any suggestions for how to lower the nozzle below 2.0, or make the proper adjustments?

RE: Z-Axis Too High

reset live Z to zero fore safety, Raise the minda a little!
1 turn will reduce live z by 1mm. (1.ooo on the live Z)

minda / liveZ relationship is effectively reverse to what you may initially imagine!

Thank you so much @joantabb. I adjusted the MINDA up, and now I'm successfully printing at -0.635, much better than before. I appreciate your help, and quick response.
