It wouldn't cost you that much. You can acquire some solder, flux (that will help things go much smoother), wire and a soldering iron, for quite cheap. Even the desoldering shouldn't be too complicated.

Here's a video

I'll give you a list, from iFixit, or you can scour eBay and find the same things

Soldering Station

This is "non-leaded" solder, that's the good stuff

Solder Leaded 63/37 Rosin Core

Tack Flux SMD291 no clean 5cc ROHS

Make sure to "tin" the areas and wires, prior to installing the new wires. You'll want to add a dash of flux, then add some solder to the wires, then solder the wires to the board
