Metal switch assembly broken

Hi,

My mute switch wasn't working anymore, it was switching to mute and back again randomly when the phone was in my pocket.

I bought a new (plastic) mute switch because I thought that was the problem.

When I got to the part where you remove the screws on the switch assembly and the volume assembly (to take it off)

As you can see on this picture:

I noticed the metal assembly was broken in half. It was a real hassle to try and secure both broken parts back in afterwards... I did switch to a new mute button and that worked for a day untill I had my initial problem again.

So I'm wondering, where can I buy that metal mute assembly you can see in the picture?

Apparently it's not included with the Headphone Jack Assembly

Is this a good question?

have you got a photo of your "broken" assembly? the metal mute assembly is separate to the volume bar (secured by a screw) and it may be you think it's broken but that's just how it's meant to be??
