Hi to all; I need some advice on ordering an original DS4 controller ribbon (image attached); the original one got nicked for me whilst replacing a broken R2 trigger.

I got one of the ribbons from ebay and replaced the faulty one; whilst everything works fine;I noticed that when playing games such as GTA5; (where a vehicle will move according to the various pressure you apply to the R2 button) this does not work with the replacement ribbon, it will only move as long as I fully press the R2 button, the speed does not match the way the R2 button is pressed.

I have tried searching for original ribbons but neither one of them has worked as the original so far. Has anyone experienced any similar issue? or know from where original controller ribbons can be purchased please?
