During disassembly, take note of how the old camera and flash ribbon cable folds, as the new ribbon cable will be laying flat, and you'll have to figure out how to refold during reassembly.
Thanks for the guide. Feels great to put the phone back together and everything works. Just take your time and don't drop any tiny screws! I use a magnetic tray and label the screws with the Step number as I disassemble.
Feature wise, the iPhone 5 is the best camera I've ever had, but I've had it less than 2 years, and have had to replace the battery, rear camera, and this audio control ribbon cable. Fortunately, all of these parts are very affordable.
Not sure what happened to my camera, but a few months back, my photos started showing feint smudges and a purple dot, consistently in the same place. This cheap replacement camera fixed it!

This battery replacement is very easy. Removing the old battery from it's adhesive is the most difficult part, but just be patient and don't force anything or use leverage against the motherboard, and you'll be fine.
I didn't see mention of it, but I found the ringer switch button would slide down to OFF during reassembly, so I made sure the new ringer switch was also set to OFF before screwing all back together.
This is tricky during reassembly. A pair of tweezers can help here. And take your time. As Johnny indicates, there is concern about the amount of flat ribbon bend required to place this piece into the hinge properly.
The screw on the left side had to be removed, but I believe these guides are skipping that step.
