How do I re-assemble cable number 6?


I got a a new back panel for my iPhone 3GS. I managed to re attach the power button, headphone jack an sound controls. However when it comes to re attach the ribbon cable numbered 6, I just can't understand how I'm supposed to do it. I've been trying for almost 4 hours turning it around and attaching it to the logic board to try and make some sense of it. Can anyone help me please?

Thanks in advance.

#6 is a simple pop cap connector exactly like #7. Carefully pop #7 off again and look at it closely, look at the connector on the Logic Board and the #7 ribbon cap. Now examine the #6 components does it look identical in every way to #7, is something damaged? Now reconnect #7 carefully. Now reconnect #6 exactly the same. Done.
