Since the m.2 slot supports both 2242 and 2280 drives, to fix them the standoff for screw is needed, removable in this case in order to prevent the electrical short on the SSD bottom side.. It seems it's absent on the laptop chassis. According to the laptop parts list the following piece is that one - the bracket with the standoff

Its Lenovo p/n (FRU) is 5B40S22001. Maybe this part is provided as a separate one in the laptop package.

 

DIY something in case the bracket isn't available - add the silicone thermal pad on the chassis (BTW it'll improve the drive cooling) and the thermal glue drop to fix the drive to the chassis.

Thank you. My bad, yes there was this part at the bottom of the laptop, holding the 2.5 drive placeholder previously
