i dont have one. **bleep**. i think i know why.

the laptop came as brand-new but with the thick ocz agility 3 that the technicians squeezed in somehow. and the already tight fit made them drop the cage. at least i know now what is missing. thanks!

Did your original drive have rubber side rails/bumpers on it? If so, you may be able to move them over and use them on the SSD?

 

Have a look at pg63 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual for more info, though, because it shows specific side rails for an SSD. You may wish to refer to the FRU parts list also.

 

Regards.

no. the ocz agility 3 was such a tight fit that it didnt have any bumber or cage. it stayed in place just because it was so big.

I contacted the place of purchase and i hope they will provide everything i need.

OCZ drive is not something lenovo fits to any thinkpads. Also the T430s uses 7mm ssd, not a 9.5mm drive.

well the local seller has fitted the ocz agility 3 inside t430s. and as im telling it was an extremely tight fit when removing the drive- a 9.5mm drive inside 7mm

Go back to the seller and get the rubber rails.  They are part of the system.  If that doesn't work, you'll have to buy them. They are part of the standard Lenovo drive caddy system.
