Default Charger plug "seal" is broken...how do I replace?

hello all,

I'll keep it short and sweet--

The little black seal inside the charger plug, that plugs into the phone is broken..now the plug will not properly close and the phone is no longer waterproof. how do I go about replaced that one seal?

Thanks a lot!

(I know that image is NOT of the charger or even of a z ultra..but I am just trying to give reference to the black plug I am talking about)

Thanks a lot!

Hi you got the water seals around the connector, so the phone still water proof. If the cover is broken replace it by a new one

Hmm okay..thanks.

Where can I go to buy the connected then? Also, how would I install the connector? It is installed inside the phone...

If the connector is broken you need to open the phone for replacing

Well, the connector isn't physically broken...just the seal inside the connector. What must I do then?

Also, where would I buy phone pieces for the z ultra?
