I cannot for the life of me put the heat sink back on top of the m.2_1 slot. Even with no M.2 storage in it. The right screw does not catch no matter what i do.

Both M.2 right screws do not catch the M.2_1 heat sink.

I think it will be a bit easier if you give the right side (M.2 slot side) a little screw first, screw the left side firmly, then screw the right side in firmly. At least that's what I do what I have a hard time screwing.
If there are two layers of thermal pad, probably you can try to take one off. Maybe you will have enough length.
