    My Hard Drive died and was suggested to change the Hard Drive cable.

    I took out the old Hard Dive cable and attempted to fit the new one.

    All was going well until you had to 'Flick Up' the little connector to slide in the new one, when I did this, the end of the Yellow Cable (The Pins) broke off.

    So I need this new part, does anyone know what you call it and where I could get one?

    Oh out of interest how exactly does this bracket even work? I know you have to connect it but when you screw the bracket back in place there's no kind of any other connection or supply? It seems like it doesn't even connect to anything???

    Update: The replacement HDD Cable has worked and my MacBook Pro is now in full working order again.

    Just to let people know, if you try to replace this, there is a little yellow ribbon cable you're supposed to connect on one of the HDD brackets. This had broke but this wire is only a heat sensor. Mine isn't connected and is just tucked next to the HDD so if yours is broken or you can't work it out, don't stress over it, it doesn't really need to be connected.
