How can I fix the zif connector?

Block Image

Hi, my original 3DS (old) has a broken zif connector on the board. It's located on the top right, the speaker cable flex connector.

Now, how can I fix that? Where can I buy the replacement zif connector?

The board is good, I don't wish to throw away.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

3 options:

-resolder a new connector

-just replace the latching mechanism with a new latch

-put the cable in place, tape it down and apply pressure with a piece of tissue between the case and connector for example
