bracket left over from strip down


I changed the headphone jack assembly on the iphone 5, so had the phone on bits, but as I was taking it apart, I noticed a bracket was inside the frame, I thought id spot where it went on the reassembly, but I didn't! Anyone know where this part is from?

As it happens, the headphone jack doesn't work, charger and speaker does. Is there anything obvious I should look for when opening up again apart from making sure everything is seated? I did swap the resistor over to the new one, so that can be ruled out.

Many thanks
