Title:

Are my Mac mini 2011 IR and Fan connectors broken

Text:

I lifted these off using a plastic prying tool, but I can't them back on...are these pins that stick into holes? Because all I see are the metal parts but there are no pins, leading me to believe that I snapped off the pins and the four metal things that I see on the logic board are the snapped off halves?
