Missing resistor around headphone jack

Been given a destroyed 5s to fix, it was basically mashed up from a ride on lawnmower!!!

So the bottom left had the microphone cut off, and also the little resistor flex that goes around the headphone jack.

What is this part actually called, as I'm having problems locating it, and what's its function?

Amazingly, everything else is working fine!!!!

Many thanks

Update (10/21/2015)

Just to be clear. I am replacing the whole dock connector.

BUT the small part in the link below is damaged, it is this part which does not come with the new dock connector.

This is attach with a small amount of adhesive and secured with the two screws at the bottom left and top right of the headphone jack.

This would normally be taken off the original, but this one is torn from the breakage.

Is this a good question?

They don't come with the small resistor though. I normally have to take them off the original, and place it around the new one. Which is then secured by telephone 2 screws.


I guess i don't know what you're talking about. I've always just replaced the new assembly, and didn't have any problems



the small blue resistor attached to the left of the headphones jack.


Easier and quicker to just replace the full unit


That's what I said
