Fix non-working Face ID for iPhone XR?

Has anyone managed to fix their non-working Face ID on their iPhone XR?
Any recommendations on shops that can fix it for a reasonable price?
I've had shops telling me that they can try to fix it for $x but no guarantee and I still have to pay if it doesn't work. Who would want to go for that....?

Folks can correct me if Im wrong

Only  is able to get it fixed.
Face ID Auth element is tied to logic board and has to be paired by 

my current iPhone X, out of warranty, have issue with faceid and the ambient sensor. the consultant told me for faceid issue is to do a 1-1 replacement. I was told for iPhone X will be 800plus sgd, and only 90days warranty.

ts probably can refer here for the pricing
https://support.apple.com/en-sg/ipho...e#otherrepairs

I suggest just buy a new phone instead. nonetheless, book an appointment with Apple to do the diagnose.
