Hello,

Unfortunately that is not normally a part that we offer as it is integral to the mainboard. On a case-by-case basis we may be able to repair that if you give us a call and have us perform the repair. Otherwise, any conductive, flexible metal will work here if it can be soldered to the mainboard and can hold pressure to the home button backplate. I've taken a measurement if it helps for the height of the spring and it is just over 2mm, you might even go to 3mm, and it is shaped into an "S". Hope this helps!

John

So, I have this same issue. The gold piece is missing. How much would you charge to fix it? If not, how does it attach to the board? Is it somewhat easy to do? At this point, the glass was broken in the take apart, and the lcd was damaged as well. That is another $25 in parts, but all of that is useless without that gold piece. Hoping that you can help!
