Well the vibration motor sits under the lower left side of the motherboard on the back....So it would be the lower right side on the front of the phone. If there is a screw out of place or the contacts are not straight and aligned with the contacts on the bottom of the motherboard it may cause that. If its been apart, try pulling the motherboard back out and make sure the vibration motor is straight and the contacts align properly with the two pads on the bottom of the motherboard.

Hope this helps!
