Ensure the printer is turned off and not plugged in.
While moving with the extruder, the X-axis motor works as a generator. You will create a small amount of electricity and the LCD might flicker. Move with the extruder reasonably slowly and in the future always use the printer's controls.
Move the extruder manually all the way to the left.
By rotating BOTH threaded rods at the same time on the Z-axis move the nozzle until you reach the heatbed. Try rotating both the rods equally!
Check again from a different angle the nozzle is touching slightly the heatbed. Don't bend the heatbed!
Don't place the steel sheet on the heatbed during the entire SuperPINDA sensor adjustment process. Wait for the XYZ calibration.

Move the extruder carefully to the right so that the nozzle is still above the heatbed area just before its edge. Not out of the heatbed area!
Make sure that the nozzle is not scratching the surface during the movement! If it does, rise the right side of the X-axis by rotating the right Z motor (threaded rod) slightly clockwise.
If an adjustment is needed, you can lower the nozzle height by rotating the right Z motor (threaded rod) counter-clockwise.

Move the extruder to the centre of the X-axis.
Take a zip tie from the package and place it under the SuperPINDA sensor. Use the middle part of the zip tie, not the tip.
Release the screw holding the SuperPINDA sensor and gently press it against the zip tie.
Tighten the screw on the SuperPINDA holder again.
!!! DO NOT use glue to fix SuperPINDA sensor in the new type of holder with the M3 screw, you won't be able to release it again !!!
A correct height of the SuperPINDA sensor compared to the nozzle should be similar to the last picture.
