Title:

What did I remove? Small dot of glue on the motherboard

Text:

Hello!
 
I accidentely broke subwoofer/speaker connector on the motherboard when I was going to tear my computer down to replace thermal paste, I tried to attach it with super glue (doh!) but that didn't work.
 
I thought I had spilled this small dot of glue on the motherboard but it was actually a dot of glue that was supposed to be there and I'm now afraid I've destroyed something.
 
What I'm referring to is marked with arrows :)

Would it be possible to solder or put this little glue dot back? Also is it possible soldering back the subwoofer connector?
 
I feel so stupid :(
 
Thanks in advanace!
