How can I reinstall hard drive guides for hard drive to connect?

While swapping hard drives on my macbook, one of the black rubber guides on the side came out with the drive. As a result, when I reinstall a drive, the drive doesn't sit right and the machine doesn't recognize the drive. Is there some way to get these brackets back in place?

The machine is a macbook white 13 core duo 1.87
