Broken connector replacing Logic Board

Hello everyone,

today i was disassembling my macbook pro a1260 for trying to fix my logic board.

Arrived step 14 of the guide, i accidentally broke the first connector on the left, near the two connector of the left fan.

if i fix it with some glue could it work again? Is there a place to by just the connector?

Then, if it's broken, could my laptop work again? (also without a component, it was a my old macbook and i just want to try to fix it)

Sorry for my english but I'm italian.

Thanks in advance

cicchilitto, first let me say that there is nothing wrong with your English. Second, it is never a good idea to glue a connector. It is very seldom that glue will hold and that it makes proper contact. You should give us the last three digits of your serial number so we can properly identify your computer and your logic board. Also, it will help if you post an image of your board and connector, so we can see what you see. It is important to check the solder pads as well as the traces.


Thanks oldturkey03,

I edited the question with a picture of my board.

The last three digits of the s/n are YJZ.
