I broke the super drive cable when I was installing the original hdd in place of the super drive. I bought a SSD to be my main hard drive. All was going well until the cable tore.
The cable sits in a 90 degree angle and when you pull out the super drive or put the hard drive enclosure down, it can snap...
Easy! I just had to be extra careful seeing that I broke the original one.
Be very careful with the cable...it is way too fragile and would break at any time

Small tear in my sata superdrive cable (was using it for a second SSD). Obviously a simple replacement was the solution.
As you would expect.
Try to get the cost of shipping to Canada down. The shipping was more than the part. That said, it was next day delivery. Impressive.

I had installed an OWC Data Doubler in my 2011 MBP and all was fine until the now-external SuperDrive stopped working properly. So I swapped the SuperDrive back into the MBP only it didn't work there either.
I put my HDD back in and THAT didn't work! Something was wrong. Careful inspection revealed the SATA cable had been flexed too much and sustained two cracks, severing a couple of circuits.
Having re-assembled my MBP several times with the various swaps I had done until this point I managed to do the whole operation from memory – being VERY careful with pressure on the new SATA cable. When I put it back together again, the HDD worked. The SuperDrive was still dead, so I ordered a Blu-Ray drive to replace it.
When the instructions say "fragile" they mean fragile. Take care with that SATA cable!

I accidentally damaged the optical drive cable of Macbook pro 15" when I opened it. I am covered under apple support, but since this is a self-inflicted damage, I didn't expect Apple to replace it for free. I was forced to find the spare part myself which is when I found iFixit.
I searched in iFixit and found an identical spare on it which I ordered. I received the piece in 2 days in Singapore. I replaced it in the Mac and it worked perfectly. The packaging was meticulous and the updates from iFixit with tracking in Fedex were wonderful.
In future, I will look into iFixit as my first choice of spare parts. I recommend the same to all.

Easy, just replace the broken cable using the guide from ifixit
Be careful when disconnecting the cable : )
