No vibration after battery and charge cable replacement

I recently replaced my battery and charging cable on my Pixel 4 and have not had any vibration since. It doesn't appear that any cable that would have been disturbed goes to the vibration motor. Is it possible it just got dislodged? Is the vibration motor replaceable?

I've ensured all the basic settings are correct. I have vibration and haptic turned on, and still nothing. I've restarted the phone several times. The phone has been on vibrate, silent, and ringer on, and still no change in behavior.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Check that the vibration motor (supplier example only) flex cable connector is securely plugged in. It may have become dislodged during your repair.

Here's the ifixit Google Pixel 4 Charging Assembly Replacement that may help. Scroll down to Step.31 to see how to disconnect the vibration motor flex cable from the charging assembly.
