Hi,

You may be out of luck in just trying to replace the webcam module.

According to the service manual (taken from this webpage), in the display assembly removal procedure section, once the display assembly has been removed from the palmrest assembly, it states on p.62:

The display assembly cannot be further disassembled. If the display bezel, display panel, camera module, display cable and touch-screen cable (optional) are defective and need to be replaced, replace the entire display assembly.

I have found a web cam module replacement part (supplier example only to give idea of what it looks like and the cost) but cannot find out how to safely dis-assemble the display so that the webcam can be replaced. You may have better luck.

I don’t know this particular laptop but Dell laptops of this era are generally petty repairable. You just have to remove the screen bezel (the iFixit jimmy is good for this), possibly after removing 2 or 4 screws, likely hidden under rubber screw caps. The webcam will then be visible, and retained by 1 or 2 more screws. Unplug the old one and plug in the new, reassemble and you’re done!
