    When I was removing the GPS from the shell - I accidentally damaged the end connector in the process.

    Can someone please direct me where I could find a replacement connector piece?

    Thank you in advance

    Here you go

    Connector is a molex ( 51021-0500 )

    The pins inside connector are ( 50079-8000 )

    Again,
    You will need the crimpers ( Engineer PA-09 connector plyers )

    Hope this helps
    Those are at DIGIKEY, plyers on eBay.

    :cool:

    Go to Frys, you might find a similar one with all the needed tools.

    I have replaced the connector with a new ribbon but when soldering - one of these purple things (resistors?) fell off in the process.

    What are these called and where can I find a replacement for one?

    Those look like resistors,
    If you can take a better closeup of one maybe with macro lens, you can see what resistance it is on the top, sometimes letters/numbers, other times color tells the resistance.
    Any company like:
    1) Digi-key
    2) Mouser
    3) Newark element 14
    Send them the picture, and they will reply with part number

    Option 2
    Try to buy a BROKEN unit for cheap to RESOURCE, that part!

    Hope this helps
