CPU thermal sensor + Speaker cable connectors broken


Can anyone advise whether it's possible to source connectors that a CPU thermal sensor and Speaker cable used to attach to as a Mac Mini 2.26 GHz that I've bought has had both of these torn off the logic-board unfortunately. The connector that was soldered to the logic-board for the CPU thermal sensor wasn't provided but the one connected to the flying lead coming from the Speaker is still attached (to the cable not the logic-board).

I'm 'okay' with soldering but haven't soldered anything quite as fine / delicate as this but would give this a try should this be a recommended fix.

At a guess the connectors are not sourceable by themselves failing that would be desperately expensive.

Thank you for any help with a possible fix.

Grabbing a damaged logic board or machine off e-bay might be a source. Of course you want to specify that those connectors can't be damaged as they are your main interest in the "for repair only" logic board.
