Tube from filament sensor came out - how to get it back in?

Hi,

In an attempt to stop extruder grinding, I unloaded the filament and had to draw it out manually - and accidentally, the small tube on the filament sensor came out.

How to get that back in again?

The installation description from Prusa at https://help.prusa3d.com/guide/5-lcd-assembly-electronics_202703#202899 doesn't help me here.

How to get that fixed? Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

* Edit: Slightly pushing it back in also does not work, it immediately falls out again. **

unfortunately this will just fall off, you could try to screw it together harder so it stays in place, or just use some hot glue (if it sticks to the PTFE tube...)

But I recommend printing this https://www.printables.com/model/78170-magnetic-pfte-coupler-adapter-for-prusa-mini-filam along with https://www.printables.com/model/32368-join-ptfe-tubes-together-magnetically

See my GitHub and printables.com for some 3d stuff that you may like.
