    Well, if you would manage to get this new part and you are good with soldering-iron then probably you could disassemble the unit and replace the broken part.

    Might be better off breaking open a cable and soldering the leads together. That is what I would try at least.

    As stated above, one can replace the damaged part.It is easily found and can be soldered into place.
    However, for best results, use a good soldering station and some tricks.I use ChipQuick for desoldering parts just to avoid thermal damage and avoid damaging the copper traces.
