Kingston Hyper X SSD SATA Connector Issue
I was trying to update Hard disk which i use it for backup data and was testing other hard drives. So I unplugged SSD and tested others and connected them. Now when i try to plug back my SSD, i see SATA cable not fitting tight and when i looked at Port on SSD, i see the L shaped Plastic piece which attaches to all these 7 pins is broken so the SATA cable is not getting locked. SSD is boot drive and its not even showing up in BIOS.
I have upgraded lots of HDDs and never had any such issue.
Is there way to fix this connector?
Pins look good but the plastic piece L shaped attached to this connector is gone.

Since 3 yr warranty is over on this. I bought with Discover card and i want to claim extended warranty protection. As per their Claim Process they need this.
e) Itemized repair estimate from a factory-authorized service provider or a statement indicating that the item cannot be repaired along with evidence that the Covered Purchase has actually been replaced or repaired
How do we find a kingston Authorized service center to get Repair estimate on this?
