Smart Connector ribbon cable ripped A2152

During battery removal of an iPad Air 3 2019 model A2152, the ribbon cable soldered to the Smart Connector was damaged beyond repair or use. The Smart Connector contact points all still have exposed solder on them, but there is no cable connected.

Question - Is it possible to completely reassemble this iPad with working parts and expect everything to be okay minus the Smart Connector functionality? Or is this a "must fix to use" scenario?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
