Follow the 1110 Thermal fan assembly instructions from the HMM that you should have downloaded by now.

You only need a rice grain size amount of paste on the applicable surfaces, the tube sizing depends only on how often you are doing this job that it could save you some cost to buy the larger, but less price per gram, capacities.

A little tube is more than enough for one job.
