you need to replace the entire webcam with cable, which is difficult because you need to take of the entire display assembly and then separate the glass from the rest of the toplid.

You might want to use tweezers to push the broken connector out of the socket though. On some years it causes an issue with sensors, so the fan spins high speed

issues with fans are only when temp sensors are disconnected.

Fan is good I monitor it also with temperature of the CPU

On a good note it's only reaching 63 degrees C under heavy load.
