Help with putting the earpiece mic back

So I repaired my iPhone SE after a cascade of unfortunate events including but not limited to:

-smashing the screen

-getting it replaced by a third party and them messing it up

-going back so they can replace it again

-finally breaking it AGAIN

-fixing it myself

SO now we're here...

My front facing mic on the phone is really difficult to put back in place. That's it.

I replaced the screen and I just can't get the dang mic thing back in the slot. It kinda just sit on top of this soft rubber piece and doesn't really go into the slot. Whenever I using the front facing mic it doesn't intercept audio very well. It works, but Siri can't hear a word I say. Any tips/help is greatly appreciated!

side note: I'm dumb and broke something along the way and now my PC won't recognize the phone when I plug it in. I know all the other tips/tricks but I've tried them all. it's boiled down to a hardware problem (lightning port) or I factory reset/restore.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks! It's just I know what to do, it's specifically getting the earpiece back in place. I replaced everything like in the guide, but the earpiece has a weird rubber bit that doesn't let the earpiece sit easily. It's tough to explain, Thanks for your help!
