    Isn't that a capacitor?

    a capacitor function is to store energy and push it to its section?

    Yes they are important but replaceable

    Ooof that's directly from the USB-C port. Going towards the power management IC. So it's super important!

    i just found an old pic from @mattytrog related to that part where he mentions that usb still works without it, but im still not sure about what it does or what it is...

    the thing is, i can replace it but its so small im kinda scared its gonna be too hard.. so i wanna make sure is a must

    Funny enough I found the answer on Tronicsfix by a post by @FXDX (if it's the same person? Same name and avatar)

    Bloody hell that was a long time ago!

    That component is actually a ferrite choke. Fine to bypass it. F**k the FCC ;)
