I dont know how to switch the rubber

Pull the old rubber piece off and slide the new one on in its place. It may take a bit of wiggling on but it is easy enough to do. Let me know if this helps.

I just bought my smokin buds and it sounds like theres cracking or water in the right side of the earbuds

Do your old ones work ok?
If so take the new ones back and see if they can provide you with a pair that does not have the problem.
