Samsung Refridge French Door Problem

Hey Guys. Can you help me out with ideas for (yet another) problem with my Samsung French Door Refrigerator? The way it's supposed to work is when you close the left door (the one with the hinge, photo 1), there's a piece (photo 2) that's supposed to slide into a guide (photo 3) that pops the hinge back into a closed position so there's a seal on the fridge. But on mine , just now after many years, the piece is missing the guide low and away. Is there a way to adjust the door? It needs to move maybe a mm or two up and to the right.

Thoughts?

Sorry for the delay.
Can you post the model number for me.

Yay. It's PJMax :-). You always get me off the hook. I should've included the model number. Sorry. 266AERS.

I may also have fund a solution and I already ordered some shims off of Amazon. I'd still love your advice, too.

Thanks

Ken

That's a group number.
The model number is at least: RF266AERS. Possibly: RF266AERS-XAA-00.

I can't seem to find those parts. I know they are considered parts of the flipper.
They may only come with the flipper.

I use Sears Parts Direct for the best exploded views..... Samsung parts

Yup, there's more to the model number...an RF in front. But, I got the shims already and they worked easily and perfectly. Thanks, PJ, as always for the help.
