despite the intricate directions (printed underneath battery panel ON THE COMPUTER) for safely removing the airport card from a G4 powerbook, i have ripped the small wire that holds in the airport card from its square peg (which has remained plugged into the airport card)

any suggestions on how to fix this?

thanks
