How to re-solder the battery terminal back on to the logic board

When I removed the battery terminal, it unclipped using the spudger the first few times then the whole thing came off the logic board. Has anyone got any tips on re-soldering it back on to the logic board. It has four soldered connectors, and the two middle ones have pulled neat squares of the resin material off the logic board, so no solder showing!

I did this back when I first started soldering on an IBM motherboard Security chip. I never was able to fix it but you can attempt to either scrap the traces it normally connected to and attempt to solder to them, or follow the traces to where it meets up with something and hope the something is large enough to be easy to solder to. Very good eyes and soldering skills are required, also a multimeter can help a lot also.

Good Luck!

Worse case, throw it on ebay, if I saw one on there for cheap enough I would buy it just to try :D.

I have attempted to resolder the battery connect on, and out of the 4 gold tabs on the back, ive managed to knock one off and loose it... Does this mean the logic board is completely f'd now or can I just tack it to where the gold thing use to be ?

The only problem I had is the solder was not staying melted with a soldering iron. Maybe a hot air gun would be better, or low melt alloy...
