Treat for water damage by cleaning with 99%alcohol you shoul never let it dry as it will corrode.. If still no wifi after you should replace wifi flex see if that changes it

I did let it dry out and i see where vibrating motor had some greyish spot around it, however, i brush it off, but my concern is the logic board might have the some issues too of corrosion. How do i clean the board since the metal sheild is on it.

That metal shield does not come off unless cut or sniped off.. Submerge the logic board it the alcohol and kinda move it about a couple of minutes this will move any corrosion on parts then dry off with a airline through the shield gaps..

This is the best you can do with the shields on I'm afraid
