SF315-52-88A4 Adding a 2.5 hdd or ssd

When I purchased my Swift 3, I did a little bit of research and found that there was a M.2 type SSD and an empty space for a hdd or ssd. What I didn't know is that there isn't a port to plug the 2.5" into. There is a connector on the motherboard close to the empty spot, I'm guessing this is where a ribbon cable would connect to for the hard drive. I found part numbers on other threads for different swift 3 models, but when I look at their layouts, it is a little different from my laptop. Part number For cable: 50.GSLN5.006, For HDD bracket: 33.GSLN5.004. A google search returns UK sites and pricing. I was wondering if anyone has upgraded their Swift 3 SF3315-52-88A4, and if they have part numbers and pricing for America. 

This is a closeup shot of the connector on the motherboard. 


And Here is a view of the layout of its gutssss. 

If anyone can help guide me to an answer, I'd greatly appreciate it. External SSD's are still too expensive  :s

    Hello,
    CON5102 is the HDD connector (only SATA interface supported) but the part numbers are different:
    50.GZCN5.005 - HDD CABLE
    33.H1MN5.001 - HDD BRACKET
    86.B430U.006 - SCREW M2x4L K B-ZN #1 NY (Qty: 4 - To fix bracket/body)
    86.RYNN5.003 - SCREW M3x3L (K) B-ZN #1 NY (Qty: 4 - To fix HDD/bracket)

    Thank you! Now I just need to find a retailer in the US, but the part numbers and the plug location was a huge help!
