Post subject:  Repair M.2 SSD by replacing cracked flash chip

I have a brand new Corsair MP600 PCIe M.2 SSD. It has never been used or formatted, there is no data on it.
I was trying to mount it in a very inconvenient place, I pushed it too hard and cracked the flash chip on the bottom of the SSD. After this, the computer does not detect it.
I can not take it back to the store because I already threw away the box I bought it in.

So my question is, whether there is a way to repair it. Is it possible (at least in theory) to just replace the cracked flash chip with an identical one and the SSD will work fine? Is there maybe a service centre that does these kinds of repairs? (for cheaper than the $250 that a new SSD would cost me)

If that helps, I can post pictures or the exact part number written on the cracked chip.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am posting some pictures and the part number as requested.

The part number is:


All flash chips on the SSD have the same part number.
