My microphone on my S5 is not working. When I make a call I can hear the person but they can not hear me I also tried recording my voice and it didn't work, so clearly I am assuming the microphone is broken. What part do I specifically need in order to replace the microphone and have it working?

Sounds like you didn't do a search and read the existing threads on this subject. Your assumption that the mic isn't working may not be correct. You should at least try turning off the noise cancelling settings first, speaking closer to the mic, et cetera. There is also a service menu setting for microphone gain. Failing all of those items, then a warranty claim or buying the part yourself, if out of warranty.

All of these are elaborated in more detail in existing threads.

I have tried everything you have said before. If I could possibly know what specific part that is faulty so I can replace it because the warranty is expired

It would have been helpful if you had bothered to tell us up front that you had done so.
The primary microphone is part of the charging port assembly.

Ok so replacing that part should fix the problem?

I was having mic problems. Remembered a friend having issues on his S3, he used a needle to clean rubbish out of the hole on bottom of the phone. So i did the same, very thin needle only pushed in a small amount, pulled a load of fluff out. Problem solved. Two mics on s5, bottom is for using phone normally, top is for when you use in speaker mode.

Might be worth a try.

Is your phone rooted?
If yes than are you using custom kernel?
If Yes than which kernel?

Sometimes it is due to kernel.
