Thank you iFixit!

I too snapped the right speaker/subwoofer cable connector right off the mother board, but with patience and a little research, I learned how to solder the thing back on. How about a Warning!!!!! inserted at that step.? I only saw that there were comments AFTER I gingerly tried to pry the connector as instructed. It would help to show how the parts fit together as is done with the fan cable connector. Those instructions (the fan cable connector instructions), helped me better understand what I was prying apart and gave me an idea of how best to do it, and how the speaker/subwoofer cable connector connected to the board, as well as how to position the “pads.”

So, I learned from my mistake, which is a good thing. Nonetheless, I would have preferred to learn BEFORE I snapped off the cable connector, LOL!

Thanks Again for this incredible site.
