Replace Palm TX Digitizer

Does anyone know how to replace the Palm TX Digitizer? I've gotten all the step done except connecting the ribbon cable.

Any suggestions?

Is there a good software solution to digitizer drift. I am running PalmOS Garnet. Will a new digitizer installation solve the drift?

I'm going with no.

Any secrets to doing this? I am unable to slide the small ribbon cable back into the slot of the socket.

The design varies from some flip up to slide out retainer. I can't see which type was used.
