Name of the small part in surface pro 3 between lcd cable

Hey guys,

i opened my surface pro 3 to change the screen. Everything was ok but the small part

(in teardown surface pro 3 desciption : At the other end of the cable, another dubious connector with a sliver of a contact board in tow. Because, why not?

But really, we theorize that this is a thinner, cheaper connector than something utilizing a physical snap. We first saw this sort of contact on the 13" MacBook Pro Retina.)

is damaged. i dont know how but its falling on the border and the pins are bending a little . now i cant see anything on the screen after i install the new lcd assemly. The connetion is interrupt because of this damage.

anyone knows the name of this part and how can i order this part..

I try to contact microsoft in germany but they dont help in this cases..

maybe if someone know the explicit name or partnumber of this small part maybe i can find it .

everything else its working well.

i will thank you for any answer.

Here's a partial answer.

Take that same photo, use Paint or similar software to put a red circle or arrow on the exact part. We could be able to figure it out for you, especially oldturkey03 who has a special talent for finding schematics and sourcing components!
