What will I need to replace my power button and cable?

I was recently looking at my power button because its fell out. I opened the phone and saw a bit of plastic/tape under the button.

I pulled it out and it was a bit of tape with two small metal connector on it.

I am going to replace my headphone/power button flex cable and get a new power button to put in place but will i need this piece of tape and if so where do i get it from/will it come with my new flex cable?

Thanks!

Is this a good question?

This connector is one piece, so yes, you are changing the volume and sleep/wake buttons on the same cable

No worries tough!

About the tape, replace it to avoid any shorts to be safe

Polyimide Tape

this is the tape

I know this, I am more concerned about the tape that I pulled out with the 2 small metal connectors.
