All it does is connect the headphone jack to the rest of the machine. If you have no plans on using the jack, then don't replace it.

The audio/video marketplace is considered confusing by many due to interchangeable terms and extensive use of acronyms. One such source of needless confusion is the differentiation between the terms "cable" and "interconnect." Although they often mean the same thing, sometimes they do not.

I just did the same and am trying to find a cheaper replacement part. My guess is that it allows you to use the headphone jack.
