What is the name of the board that the Power Flex Cable plugs into and can it be replaced? I think I broke the socket on this board trying to remove the old flex cable with all that tape around it. The copper that makes a rectangle around the socket has a small gap in the copper. I have ordered a new power flex cable and wont be able to test it until it arrives, but I have a feeling I'm going to need to replace that board.

Picture is attached.

Thanks
Mike

This is the piece I'm looking for, and I didn't see it listed there. I have no idea what the name is or how to search for it without a name. Thanks for your help though.

Have you been through iFixIt's repair guides? If those don't help, they have a forum where you almost certainly can find someone who knows what it is.
