Used the guide for replacing DC-in board - dislodged mike board

Attempted to replace the DC-in board - It looks like I shouldn't have attempted the task, Everything went fine, but when disconnecting the DC-in board I made some wrong move and the mike, together with a black board attached to it dislodged from the logic board. I know where the board

should be, but don't know where the loose connectors attached to it should go. Is everything lost? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've tried to add my comment as an "answer and send my other pictures that show that I've pulled the wires out of microphone plug. The plug stayed in the connector on the board and I have the mike with no plug a the end of the cable, just three wires. I guess it's best to buy a new mike, I don't know what is the order of the wires.

I'll try to send the pictures, but I still don't understand how to do it. I've added the answer, added the pictures, selected "send as a comment" and sent - and now it's nowhere to be seen.

The microphone fits in a hole on the case, see step #16 of this guide: MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Microphone Replacement

Then reattach the cable as seen in step #21.
