How to connect backlight wires with broken plug?

Hello,

The plug broke off the wires for the backlight.

Anyone have any idea how can connect them or get power to the backlight without the plug on the end? The wires will not stay in contact. Also, I don't know what order they go in.

Thanks

We need more information. Would you give us the last three figures of your serial number.

Charles Kensington, BKLGHT = Inverter cable for backlight. For that I would replace the Inverter Cable part number 922-8281 Places like this as well as this one. which speaker wire? Left or right? To determine which speaker connector you need we need to know if it is the right or the left. Also, if you can measure the distance between the pins, I am certain we can find the right connector for you. Habitually Apple uses the EZmate Molex connectors.

It is the cable with four wires in step 24. It is using that guide that broke the plug. When I tried to unplug the cable the wires came out.

It says BKLGHT under the receptacle it goes into.

Hello. I got replacement plugs for the end of the backlight cable. How do I go about getting the wires into it? I expected it to be open and snap closed. Does it open somehow?

@ Charles Kensington, it might help if you at least tell us which connectors you got.

I am referring to the only connector you mentioned, the EZmate Molex.
