Damaged Wifi Antenae?


I am in the process of replacing my cracked front panel. In removing the old panel I think I may have damaged the wifi antenae. I have torn it where it screws to the frame , everything else is intact . I've tested to see if still picking up wifi and it does . So, will this be ok or will I have issues later on?

That part is very cheap and easy to replace. If you have the iPad already open, better to change it out now than a week later after you put the screen down and now start having wifi issues. And as luck will have it you will break the screen later when you take the screen off to now fix that wifi issues

Thanks for reply. I guess I will replace it. I just wanted to know if tearing it where it attaches to the case would be an issue?
