battery terminal fixed but new problem

Hello again,

I took had someone fix the terminal but something on the logic board came off and I'm hoping it can easily be solved by soldering it. I took a picture provided by ifixit and circled the part that came off.

it's the one that's centered. If anyone can give me info on the part that came off or instructions on how to resolve, thank you :)

Unlucky, but you should still be able to sort that out. The solder pad ripped off but you've still got the "gold circles" to solder to. You'll need to scrape any laquer from the top to get to the gold metal itself then you'll just need to devise a way to make the middle prongs make contact with those gold circles. You may be able to just lever the 2 prongs a little from the part that has disconnected. I haven't got the part in front of me but I think that's possible.

had another look at your pics..you may be able to leave the solder pads on and just solder (bridge) from gold circle to them but pulling those 2 middle prongs out a little from the plastic housing should work too.
