 Post subject: Repair of TomZ & mf8 3x4x5 Cube Black Body

I disassembled my 3x4x5 to lubricate it. Unfortunately, when I assembled it back, some of the faces locked up due to the centers not being aligned properly. I have to realign the centers just so I could turn the faces of the cube. How do I fix this problem? From disassembling my cube I got a tiny piece with two studs on it. I think the piece is of use to the cube alignment. If so, how do I attach it to the cube? Thanks. FYI: The version I have doesn't feature screws to the pieces.

one of the interior pieces around the centre layer has holes that those studs fit into, and it locks into place

Would you mind giving me images which show how to attach that piece?

My mistake it's actually one of the centre layer edge pieces. It has been a while since i did this now, i remembered wrongly. Instead of me trying to take mine apart to show you its easier to show you this:
