These connectors are very delicate and soldered on the logic board. The fan connector clips into them and provides voltage and control to the fan.

We clean up the area and prepare the pads for soldering new connector on the broken one’s place. Due to the force, while taking out the connector customer has ripped-off some of the traces.
