I want to repair the cable not replace it i can't afford that


@beanman56 - Sorry its not repairable! The Sleep LED is a custom Apple part and is not available separately. If you can find a old cable you might be able to transfer it over.


:/ maybe get a macbook pro from ebay that has a problem to get parts


@beanman56 It would be much easier and cheaper to just buy the cable on ebay, here's a link:


i dont trust ebay one frickin' bit
