When putting the plastic battery rig back in on my second time doing this, I bent one of the little plastic pins that fits into a hole in the PCB. Definitely want to be careful with that. To make it a bit easier, I unscrewed the bottom port PCB part of the way so I could take the bottom plastic housing and put the plastic battery rig in straight. It made it a lot easier.

No need to take out the motor, just use sharp tweezers and grab the connector (NOT the wires) and with small wiggling pull it out. Worked for mine.
