I'm finally getting around to repairing the SID in my 03 SE Convertible. I see a ton of different ribbon cables available on eBay. Can anyone recommend a reliable source for these? I would want a kit with the heating iron, but also a vendor where I could buy just the cable as I need to repair more than one unit, and also would like to have at least one extra cable in case I screw up.


Anyone? Thanks in advance.

The previous owner of my 9-5 got a repair kit for that SID (which I think is similar) that uses a long metal clip to secure the ribbon cable. It also came with a replacement screen. I have no idea where he got these, but the fix worked--and continues to work--nicely.


It may be the kit down this page, that says "no soldering required" with metal clip included:

The nice thing is that the screen is done, and if you misalign the ribbon to the PCB board, you can realign it (but you'd rather not).
