I tore a tiny little connector out of it's socket. What do I do?

I tore this miniture connector out of it’s socket on my Macbook Unibody A1342, it looks like it goes to the fan and I’m really scared that it’s going to goof up the laptop. I’m attempting a motherboard replacment and I needed to disconnect it.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Putting on Magical Remote Viewing Glasses to view "it looks like it goes to the fan". Nope not seeing anything. Maybe my Glasses are broken and I should post a query about the problem on Ifixit. Ohhh, I will have to remember to include a photo or two of the actual damage so that participants get a clear concept of the situation. :-)

No. It's this tiny 2 pin connector. Sometimes it snaps back together but falls apart when moved.

Probably goes to the speaker if it is two pin.

Thank you. That's not as bad as I thought.
