macbook 1.83 hard drive rubber thingos problem

i have a macbook 1.83. i have been having a problem with intermittent shut downs when i lean on the lower right corner over the hard drive. i also found it starting up by itself on occasion. pulling the hard drive seems to have helped. after pulling the drive and then replacing it, i can no longer trigger the shutdowns. but: when i pulled the drive, two rubber thingos (for want of a better technical term) prevented me replacing it. after their removal, the drive went in fine, but i am unable to understand how to put them back in again... if someone has a thought i would appreciate it. ifixit.com doesn't seem to deal with this...
many thanks
