Slow wifi due to missing cable


I had to replace my MacBook Air keyboard because I spilled water on it. During the disassemble I accidentally took the metal top of one of the antenna cable that goes into the Airport/Bluetooth card.

Both wifi and Bluetooth are working, but the connection is very slow compared to when it used to be. Also, the connection is normal when connected to Ethernet cable

Is there a way to repair this metal top?

Thanks in advance

You will need to replace the complete lid assembly as Apple does not sell the antenna assembly alone (Apple P/N 661-5732) Ouch!

Sadly trying to replace just the antenna alone is not every practical as the lid is very difficult to open up. Follw this IFIXIT for the needed steps: MacBook Air 13" Late 2010 Display Assembly Replacement
