Part number to replace LED under palm rest for M15X

HI, I just installed a new system board in my M15X. (Previously damaged while adding Radeon 6970). All is working well except I crinkled the front 'filter' (white strip) behind the right front grill. The LED is no longer working to light the grill. I suppose this is hardware damage as it is too coincidental that a software bug would strike for the first time following my mishap when adding back the palm rest.

What part do I order to replace the LED? Palm rest assembly? Speaker assembly? Other?

 

Cheers for the help

Those 2 you mentioned are the ones that should be replaced.

Hi Thanks for your response. Im a little confused. Why would I need two parts  (palm rest and speakers) to fix one faulty part?
