The Brown cable hold down breaks when you remove it.

The brown connector breaks as soon as you pull it straight out to take the wire out in step 3. It has two little arms with hooks and one arm is now gone. How do I reassemble my ipod (reverse step 3) since you didn't supply a new brown connector with the new cable? This should come with the cable assemble.

I can tell you of hand without exactly knowing which cable or part on the iPod video you replaced, that none of the cables or parts come with replacement clips. All the connectors have PERMANENT clips that push on the cable and thus cause the connection. You can try to find a clip from another logic board of same kind and see if you can replace it. This is very tedious and will require some good magnification and dexterity. Personally I think you may have to replace the logic board. But give us some more info and we will see if we can help you further. Good luck.
