How to add new 3.5 hdd in 5.25 bay on ML350 G6

Hi,
I just want to know how to add a 3.5 inches drive in the 5.25 bay on the ML350 G6 Server. In the with the ML350 G5 it was different and it is really easy to do this.
So, is there any enclosure or bracket we have to purchase? If yes what is the part number?
Thanks in advance

Hello,
so pls consider that Hp official quickspecs for server ML350G6 say clearly that:

"NOTE: Please note that SFF 2.5" (small form factor) drives can only be installed on tower or rack models with SFF chassis (models)"

So this depends on which model do you have installed.

Finally I found a solution, we-ve purchase a plastic enclosure from startech.com and it's work great.
