Reattaching rubber shield around nozzle

  • The rubber shield that covers the heating element (is that what it's called?) letting the nozzle come through a hole has become detached from the heating element. How can I securely reattach it?

    Background: When I loaded filament into my Ender-5 Plus for the second time, something went wrong and I ended up with melted (and re-solidified) filament accumulating found the heating element. I managed to pull it out, but the rubber shield came out with it.

  • Here's a photo of the rubber shield I wrote about, in case there's any confusion.

    And here's a photo of the extruder before I pulled the solidified filament out.
