Broke plastic connector for temperature sensor?
While trying to upgrade the SSD, I accidentally broke the plastic connector to what I think is the 'Right Temperature Sensor' according to iFixIt.
This is a picture with a similar cable coming from the optical drive that I guess is also a temperature sensor:
To see this on the logic board, look at the first link here where the connector is at the furthest left in the blue box:
The entire logic board can be seen in this image from iFixIt:
First I want to know, can I replace this wire? I found this on an external website since I couldn't find it here. Is this the right cable?:
I was planning on trying to put the connectors back into their slotting and use poster putty and electrical tape to fix them in place. Is that a fair fix for this issue?
How would I replace this cable if I had to, and what does it even do? I guess it's important for the fan control and heat sink, but I guess I really screwed up badly then.
I'll really appreciate any help!
Is this a good question?
