There are plenty of places online to get the parts you need, as well as repair shops that you can send it to. My guess is that you will be in the $50 to $100 range for parts and repair.

If I want to try to self-repair this, what parts would I need?

Did UPS break it? Or did it happen to you?
Because if UPS did it, I'd raise a royal rhubarb at their offices.


Fixing it,

Yeah, i did it myself. Im so awesome at holding things,right?
Yukon that helped a lot, and i WISH it was UPS.
Im not sure i can repair it myself because with my luck I would destroy it.
Apple said $99 to fix (they replace it with a refurbished model of the same generation)
Is apples price too much?

I also might do it myself. What parts would I need? I know the LCD and glass but would I also have to replace the front pannel because of the missing part? (Easily visible in pic 1)

The $99 doesn't seem like a bad idea, imo either. There is no telling what other damage might have happened in the process. And you never know, if you could break something during the repairing of the device either.
