Hello, i need replace broken Color Trimmer Capacitor on my IBM PC motherboard. Is there any chance to buy original one somewhere (ebay, aliexpress...), or i must buy new made replencement?

I really would stick to a newer replacement. There's no need to go with an old style trimmer, which is likely going to be hard to find.

In case you have not seen it, be aware of the 'replacement' discussion in the 'Trimmer T1' section of [here (http://minuszerodegrees.net/5150/misc/5150_motherboard_switch_settings.htm)].

If you need a short-term solution, you might want to consider using a Gimmick (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimmick_capacitor).
