SSD "adapter/spacer" missing in ThinkPad 9.5mm SATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter IV for W540

Hello guys!

We are trying to install a Crucial m500 960Gb SSD into the hard drive bay adapter for the w540.
While the drive fits, once it's connected is not snug and kind of "rattles" inside the bay adapter.
It turns out that you need one of this little adapter/spacers that are present in the actual main SSD that came with the machine.

We've searched everywhere for the part number or even it's name, with no luck.

Here's the picture of the part:

How can we get one?

Shouldn't this part be included in the Hard Drive Bay Adapter IV?

Thanks so much for your help!
