Not advertising for seller nor website. Just from a quick search.
Suggest you cut out the middle man, (Reseller), and replace it yourself. Keep your hard earned money in your pocket, and stop listening to the prattle of that reseller.

Use a multi-compartment container, for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of. SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws. Advise do NOT mix them up.
Make a personal record as you disassemble. Make notes and drawings if needed. Take photos, or use a video cam. (Use good lighting) It's nice to have a Service Manual, but even nicer to have your OWN personal information too.
