Need to find part not available at iFixit store
I've taken my iMac apart due to the problem described in this answer, and it looks like I need a new part. However, iFixit doesn't sell it (it's a ribbon cable that connects to the audio in and audio out ports).
The local Mac store said they'd fix it for $170, but that they have an agreement with Apple that they have to do the repairs themselves (boo). Does anybody know where I can buy this part? (for clarification, this is an iMac 11,1)
Is this a good question?
