The camera cable routes up through the display assembly to the camera board above the LCD. To completely remove it you have to pull off the display glass. It's a very delicate procedure, so be careful and work slowly.

well, but my is 2011, a you sure my case is the same?


by the way, my macbook still under in 1 year warranty, so in this case the can replace cable , or they reject to replace cable?


The unibody display assemblies have been nearly identical for 4 years. If your computer is under warranty, what were you doing to break the cable? Assuming there are no traces of you interfering with the laptop, they should honor your warranty.
