Ribbon cable disconnected from keyboard

When replacing my ssd I accidentally pulled the keyboard and the ribbon cable that connects with the motherboard disconnected (on the keyboard side). My question is - is there an easy way to connect it back? I probably will need to unscrew the metal plate covering the connection… but for now I dont have T3 screwdriver.

Update (05/28/2021)

Well I will get my hands on a right screwdriver on monday. I searched a bit and this seems to be the connector under the sheild.

The left part and right part seems to be taken already by two other cables, thats why I am not sure yet how to connect it... will have to try it out later when i get the screwdriver, i guess.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi as i see there is no connector visible so i guess its hidden under the shield so maybe you can take off the metal shield and see what’s going on.

Maybe you can look here at 0:50 to get an idea of where the wire is connected. (indeed its under the shield)
