I'm having the same issue. Though I printed the updated extruder head (R2), not the original one. And I can't hit X-stop.
I havent check cable routing but I didn't notice it either.

Now I see there is an R3 Extruder head. Does that fix this issue?

I had the same issue after upgrading to MK2.5 (R3).
The problem was -> cable routing at the Noctua fan!
The cables hit the carriage and prevented the activation of the endstop.

Same issue here, likely the fan wire routing but for now I attached a small self-adhesive bumper I had to the spot on the extruder body that hits the limit switch and that fixed it for now.

I had this same problem and it was the wiring from the extruder motor and fan. Mine had popped out. there is a channel behind and to the back of the extruder fan. If you can see the wires to the back of the extruder fan then your x stop point will not get hit. If you have this problem the just pull the fan and make sure the wires are in the channel. look closely you'll see what I am talking about
