How Can I Reconnect the Fan, when the connector sheared off?
I went to replace the hard drive in a Mac Mini Mid 2011.
When I used a spudger to pry loose the fan connector from the logic board, I think the connector sheared away from the logic board, which is a bummer.
I went ahead and made the replacement of the hard drive.
When I went to re-install the fan, since the connector wouldn't simply attach, I have tried taping it in place with electrical tape. Wishful thinking, I know.
I started it up with the cover off, and the fan isn't moving, so I'm pretty sure the fan isn't getting power.

> Is this connector super delicate,?
Other connectors I have been able to disconnect.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
