Yes you're right it's kind of tricky. Pull the bolt out of the plotter to the right side through the Service Station Holder (right bracket), and then insert the hole of the bolt (metal clip) onto the knob that is located on the Service Station Holder and then pull the Encoder Strip to the left direction gently until it takes its place.
Find attached a picture for that!
Anyhow, here you can get off the service manual with diagrams for the plotter:
Hope this helps.

Thank you for your quick reply. I follow from what you wrote and the diagram (thank you!)of which opening to use, but I don't see the knob.
Does this mean that the encoder strip metal clip "rests" against the plastic service station and is held by tension by the left hand side?
Also, now this seems really weird, but the encoder strip does not seem to stretch across the entire plotter - it seems short.
When I threaded it through the carriage I did so at a rectangular opening that is just above the bar and screw and below the carriage belt. Is this correct?

After a bit of searching I could not find any decent photos of the Right End, Service Station bracket and Encoder Strip bracket to show the orientation of the parts involved.
So I did my own and set up a post for it.
It is a bit too involved and too many photos to show here so I will have to link to it.
I hope this helps and clears up any questions you may have about the proper placement and routing of the encoder strip into the right end or service station bracke and the securing of the end of the encoder strip.
