    Hi,

    This is my first post but I've been lurking for ages!

    I sucessfully replaced my iphone screen but originally didn't order the adhesive strips (which I've got now...)

    When I took it apart the second time, the ribbon clip for cable 3 (the flat ribbon, the clip should lift 45 degrees, cable slips in then clip closes to lock the cable in place.... but the clip disintegrated so I can't keep it in place.

    Does anyone know if there is a spare part for this, other wise its breaking the iphone for spares and selling on ebay which I really don't want to do!!

    I had the same problem this afternoon when i replaced the battery!! I had opened it up previous to this and the clip was fine but when i opened it up again i tried to unclip number 3 and it disintegrated so instead i bent the prongs onto it and so far it has not come unclipped by itself.. so far lol

    the entire connector can be replaced. you can buy it on ebay and have it soldered by a professional, or if you have a small fine tip iron, and a microscope you can do it by yourself. let me know if you need help, ive done a few.
