Need instructions or help in assembly

Some how I screwed up ( forgot a nut or it fell out)  I am building the E-Axis assembly (extruder) and on step  #38 (FS-cover assembly) trying to put in the M3x10 screw and the nut is missing. At this point I don't even know what part the nut is located on!  Does anyone have instructions/ideas on how to get this nut in easily or should I tear everything apart and start over. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The Filament Sensor Cover bolt threads into a square nut that should have been inserted at Step 5, photo #2. If the nut is not present, it will be necessary to move the extruder motor plate for access. To do this, the filament sensor and ball holder should be set aside, the X-carriage rear cover should be unbolted and moved over, then the fans should be unbolted and moved aside gently, then the extruder cover removed, then the extruder motor plate unbolted  and moved enough to get the square nut in.

The Extruder assembly is the most difficult part to assemble, so don't get discouraged!
