    With a sharp fingernail I seem to have damages the internal ribbon cable that connects the audio card in my 2009 Mac Mini, and am looking to source a replacement, preferably in the EU. I'm currently in the UK.

    The part number is 922-8809.

    Any ideas? A Google search reveals a few parts suppliers in Europeland, but they are all charging silly prices for the cable, and US suppliers impose ridiculously high postage charges.

    That'll be a bit difficult, considering they have to be ordered internally from Apple.

    How much are the people you found charging?

    As much as €99 plus VAT. Yet even the briefest of googlings reveals US outlets that charge around $30 (€25). The problem there is that they want $90 in postage and packing fees.

    had you checked ebay? generally they have cheap parts. maybe you might get lucky and find a cheap/broken mac mini to take the flex cable out of?
