hi!

Ive changed some stuff in my macbook pro and ive accidentialy destroyed the socket to one of the cables to the fan. Is there any way i can repair it without having to buy the super expensive new logic board? Ive tried to glue it but it didnt work

Cheers,

Daniel

The only logical approach would be to note the position of the fan connector wires in relation to the damaged connector, cut off the fan connector and solder the wires to the logic board. Unless you have the experience and a fine tipped iron, I'd get someone with experience to undertake the work.
