Replacement SATA connector for 5000AZRX drive

#1

Dear All,

I own a 500GB WD5000AZRX drive. It works but the sata connector is broken. I could buy an identical dead drive and cannabilise the parts. I can only see functional ones on ebay at present although they are cheap.

Is there a way to buy a replacement part from WD itself or is that not a practical idea?

Cheers
