There is a small plastic 'box' covering a few components that must be transferred to the replacement cable assembly. Also, there is a small foam 'frame' that covers a sensor (proximity?) that must be transferred to the replacement cable assembly.
If you are replacing any of the cables that connect here, be sure to save the foam from the top of the connector to put on your replacement part. It helps secure the connector once the connector cover is put back during reassembly.
