HP designjet 130 printhead carriage

I am trying to clean the service station on my printer and the carriage WILL NOT move to the correct printhead replacement position. It's almost there, but constantly stops too far right for the cover to open. (the tab on the cover catches under the edge of the white "filter?" I am desperate to get this problem fixed as I need banners printed yesterday. ??? Can I safely remove the filter, or is it even necessary? Please help.

The attached file is the exact one I've been using, but the carriage won't open because it gets hung up on the right side, where a part of the cover is still underneath the side wall of the printer. I don't want to push it over because I know it will mess up the printer, but I don't know how else to move it left.

Please follow these steps:
Close all covers on the printer.
Unplug the printer from the power.
Wait 30 seconds.
Plug in the printer and wait until it is ready.
Turn on the power and wait until the display is up.
Lift up the ink tank and print head cover.
DO NOT INSERT ANYTHING INTO THE PRINT HEAD INTERLOCK SLOT.
The print heads will move into the service position.
You can now lift the print head cover and remove the print heads.
Follow the ink station cleaning instructions.
