How to reconnect bluetooth cable unplugged?

When replacing my hard disk with one of your online guides I noticed the bluetooth cable that runs up towards the monitor came was unplugged from the little silicon board that was taped at the front of the laptop chassis. I could not determine how to reconnect it as the interface was very unfamiliar to me. The instructions on replacing said "Unplug Bluetooth cable".

Can you elaborate on how to reconnect this? Does it need to be soldered?

If the item that you are talking about is like the one in the photo below it is not a part that is meant to detach from the board. So if it is detached you will need to take care in repairing it. If you have to re-solder it remember it is coax lead.

If it is at the leading edge of the computer there is a metal shield around the cable that plugs into the small round port with a center lead in it on the board. If you broke the lead from the shield end when you disconnected it you may want to replace the antenna assembly as it is very hard to find and repair the cable end.

Let us know and good luck
