Cannot fit 2.5" HDD into the expansion slot on ASUS E402S

So i have opened the bottom panel on the laptop and removed the hdd cage, i have attached the hard drive to the cage and then connected it into the slot. I have made sure all screws are in and tightened, but when i put the panel back on it seems the drive is sticking out and the panel does not fit on flush. Please see images below

    2.5" drives can come in 2 thicknesses, 7mm and 9.5mm.

    Maybe yours requires a 7mm, and you're installing a 9.5mm.
    Just a little bit too thick..
