Garmin GNS 430W Parts Needed

I am looking for a functioning faceplate for my GNS 430W. I bent the data card prongs after an update and then things went from bad to worse. When I removed the radio faceplate to attempt repairing the bent prongs I fractured the ribbon cable that operates the frequency knobs. I wouldn’t mind so much if I hadn’t just spent over $4,000.00 having this radio WAAS updated by Garmin a year and half ago.

I think you can still send into Garmin for the flat rate repair...something like $1500

I know that’s an option, I am hoping to save some time by locating the part and having my avionics shop do it.

Thanks, I’m going to look there again. If I don’t have any luck locating the parts I’ll be sending it back to Garmin during my next annual. Sad thing is all I need is a short ribbon cable that has fractured. Simple fix if I could locate the part.
