Where can I find the 12+16 SSD logic board connector?

I’m helping a friend revive a MBP Pro 2014 from an accidental spill after sternly admonishing him for being a menace to his MacBook Pro while drinking his juice. Luckily, his data is safe, but several pins on the nameless, proprietary 12+16 SSD connector on the logic board are charred for life. I’m planning on replacing it with a new connector.

I’ve read the connector referred to as "gumstick" on the board schematics. I have conducted extensive searches, but I can't find it listed anywhere as a replacement part. I find it surprising given how easy it is to find other connectors and it's vulnerable location for liquid damage. I did find it on a few PCIe adapters, but the profile doesn't provide enough clearance for the bottom cover.

Any ideas where I should look?

I found the connector, though not as a discrete part. It turns out the Mac Mini 2014 has a flex cable featuring the 12-16 connector on one of its end:

From the photo, you can see the connector cleverly disguised with some black electrical wrap covering the metal shield plate.

Not a bad idea! Let us know if it worked.


Works like a champ! Now I have a working MBP machine. Take that Steve Apple!

You probably won’t find it anywhere new, I’ve never seen it for’ll have to buy a donor board to find one.
