My speaker is death but phone still sync/charge fine. I bought the whole dock assembly off ebay but the connector # 7 sux big time it won't connect to the logic board. I want to swap the old dock flex cable in to the new speaker housing but I don't know how they are connected. Any help will be appreciated

I searched everywhere and the instruction was to replace the whole dock connector assembly which I know how to do. I want to replace the flex cable on the dock assembly only.

Yes I got the whole dock assembly off ebay but the connector # 7 on it do not want to latch to the logic board. Anyway, I found the solution. The flex for connector # 7 is not part of the dock connector flex and it was glued on the back of the speaker housing so I just peel it off and transfer to the new dock assembly. Problem solved
