On the last step, have you found anybody that sells the whole aperture module. I would like to buy the module instead of soldering a new flex cable on. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you,

The entire aperture module is available on ebay, e.g.


Note that reference 2) in this original post states that when the cable only was replaced (re-soldering) the unit did not work, but it did work after replacing the entire aperture unit.

I greatly appreciate this DIY post- very helpful- but it should be stated up front that some fine-point soldering is required!
