    Trying to rebuild a 5S for my sister where she'd cracked the screen. After inspection, looks like the camera bracket and proximity sensor alignment bracket are MIA and I was able to order those pretty cheaply. But upon further scrutiny, and with much of the bezel plastic missing on top, I cannot seem to find the ambient light sensor filter (that little teenie piece of white material that covers the ambient light sensor). I uploaded a pic to this thread. Does anyone have a DIY fix for this or know where this almost seemingly insignificant piece can be found/purchased? I've looked on Ebay and several parts sites and can't seem to find it. Thanks again for reading and thanks ahead for your input. Darrell

    Have you tried ifixit.com, they sell a large range of genuine Apple replacement parts.

    You're welcome. I hope they have the part you need.
