I broke the ZIF connector to my headphone jack when trying to fix my new 3ds xl (2015). Does anyone know of any spare parts or anyway to reconnect the cable (I literally ripped it in half). Thanks for your help in advance!

Edit: I have just realised that I attatched the wrong picture- i also broke my microphone cable but I have found a part for that.

sorry I just realised that I attached the wrong picture- If not the headphone jack, what is the ZIF connector that appears to go below the headphone jack block?

That should be for the home button
This is what the home ribbon cable looks like.

I already told the OP what that ribbon cable looks like, the mic ribbon cable.

The only thing with a ribbon cable north of the headphone jack is the microSD slot. That can be gotten for $6 off ifixit or can be found on amazon

Just release OP is in the UK. UK amazon doesn't have the mic listed. Your going to have to try UK ebay for the part.

Last ditch option is to buy a broken new 3ds xl from ebay and scavenge the parts needed or start looking through the chinese sites for the part.
