Seating for battery connector on MacBook Pro fell off of Logic Board

So here's my situation. I picked up a used MacBook Pro the 2006 a1211 model as a little project. It was pretty beat up when i got it but the logic board functions perfect and all the other features. I did notice that the battery would not charge on it. Checked the laptop and found the seating for the battery connector on the logic board away from the logic board!

I looked at the soder points and notice 3 smalls spots and two small solder spots underneath the seating where the battery connector once was on the logic board.

I looked all over the internet for any information on resoldering this piece back onto the mother board but could not find anything.

If anyone can offer me help to get this up and running id appreciate it.

if the soldering points are still on the logicboard - you might have a chance - but very often, some of them were teared of the board.

if there are completely there, you would need a soldering iron with a very fine tip (almost like a needle), a steady hand, a magnifier and good eyes - or go the easier way - find someone who does those things for living. it's most likely cheaper than buying all the stuff to repair it on your own

Yah i hope so. I remember 2-3 solder points in the front of the seating where the battery connector is supposed to connect on the logic board.

What really concerned me though is when i looked underneath where the seating of the battery connector was supposed to be, i saw 2 more solder points underneath! I have no idea how im supposed to solder this into place. By the time i warn up the two solder points underneath the seating, it would have already hardened.

any ideas? Im just trying to aviod the expensive repair. Im even trying to avoid buying a new logic board since the only problem is that battery connector seating.

thanks for the response markus.
