    2011 mini- installing fan/hd connectors
    (Ist time, got spudger tool) Instructions say pull up disconnect but I have problem
    pushing down to connect. For hard drive (square black) connector, does top part have to perfectly line up with motherboard part?
    I cannot "see" connection alignment since its done underneath/internally.
    This requires lots of fine motor coordination which I don't have.
    Do I need a magnifying glass/loupe? Should I bring to a jeweler? I got this back from mac repairman after he didn't connnect cpu fan. This is even more difficult than the hard drive connector.
