Where to find components to repair logic board

In removing the logic board from my 2011 Mac Mini, a component came halfway off and I can not attach. I am pretty good soldering components, even small ones. However, this part is a two contact component, similar to how larger LEDs are, square, with a contact on each side. One of the contacts actually broke off and stayed on the board and the other side, I was successful in removing from the board without damage. I tried to solder the damaged side back onto the board (to the piece that is still attached to the board) with no avail.

So my question is, without spending a ton of money on another logic board (one for parts, that may have other damage that i could harvest the component from) does anyone know where I might be able to source this component individually? in the image, it is the one circled in red. It appears to have the writing "IR0 216 IJ2" on it.

ANY help would be appreciated!

Thank you iFixit!!

That looks more like a "1R0" that would make it a 1,000nH = 1µH = 1R0 inductor

Would you know by the markings what the amperage rating is as well? I have found 1R0 inductors online the same physical size but they have amperage ratings of 0.002A up to 4-5A

Your best bet would be to buy a damaged (for repair only) logic board or machine on e-bay desolder and use that part.
