6FL USB port not working

Hello, I am under warranty but I am wondering if anyone knows the part number for that USB port or the entire assembly if necessary? If it's a cheap enough part, I'd rather DIY than take it to the dealer and raise eyebrows due to mods... however unlikely it would be...

It is the USB port in the armrest. It is no longer reading anything I plug into it.

Yeah I found a US seller for it, thanks. Does anyone know if I can replace this part without removing the center armrest? Looks like it clips right in.

I paid about $40 for the USB/Aux socket as mine was intermittent. It does clip in from the top however I don't think you can release the clips without taking apart the armrest. I did it on my E90, taking apart the armrest from the rear section. Toughest part is getting the rear panel off without breaking the clips. Once you have that you have to pull the ductwork out to get access to release the cables from the USB/Aux socket.
