Broke screw bracket on bottom of iPhone

Where the two screws go in at the bottom of the iphone, one side is broken. It's the little metal piece the screw goes into.

I think I need a back shell but I'm not sure? The back shell images I've seen don't have those in them.

I also need a replacement bottom screw. Do you guys sell either of these parts or know what part I need to fix the broken screw bracket?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Those two externally visable screws attatch the Front Panel to the Rear case. Without having the phone infront of my it is impossible to tell which broke in your phone, but if you can see the broken part from outside the phone, it is probably the Rear Case, as the Front Panel's screw holes are behind the Rear Case's.

Note: The rear case is rated very difficult, and is one of the harder repairs I have done. Everything attaches to the rear case, and therefore everything has to be removed and reinstalled to replace it. If you are worried about you repair capabilities, I would look up a local repair shop.

It's the front panel that I need. The metal part the screw goes into that is attached to the bottom of the front panel is what broke off. I need to replace that and somehow I messed up the proximity sensor (prob the ribbon cable), so I need to replace that as well. Thanks!

Luckily for you, both of those issues (lower screw and proximity sensor) while completely seperate are on the same part! So like you said, replace the Front Panel Assembly and both those problems will be fixed.
