    They would repair your iPad and return it to you.

    Are sure they don't make parts and/or have a stock of parts?

    Most manufactures keep a stock of spare parts specifically for the purpose of repairs.

    Tim is right (as usual). Now and then Apple sells refurbished iPods that are three generations old. They'll have original iPads and original iPad parts for as long as any Apple Care warranty is in effect. ;)
