Soldering vibrate switch on new power flex cable?

For all the tutorials this website has, I was surprised there was not a tutorial on how to replace the power/volume/mute flex cable on an iPhone 7 Plus.

I figured it would be pretty straight forward until I received the replacement cable today and realized the vibrate/silent switch was not included and will require soldering to be transferred to the new cable.

Does anyone have recommendations on how to do this properly?

Thank you.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I would look for a replacement flex cable elsewhere. Every one I have purchased never required any soldering. My cables I have in stock now have the switch attached to the cable already.

Yes, I have the same s@!t situation, after I received the cable I realised that I have to solder. It is a cheap component I don’t want to spend time on those tiny parts. Just looking for another supplier.

Never met with this issue with flex cable.
