MacBook Retina Pro 2013 - Broken Right Fan ZIF socket

I recently spilled beer on my laptop (Early 2013 15' Macbook Pro Retina), resulting in some corrosion on the connection between the logic board and the top case/keyboard. I soaked it in iso alcohol and removed the corrosion with a fine brush. After putting it together, it works fine (as far as I can tell)!

Unfortunately, when re-assembling the laptop, I broke the retaining flap on the right fan ZIF socket. For reference, it's the socket shown here:

The socket is still intact, and the cable fits in it, but I think without the plastic latch/flap the cable won't engage. I put some electrical tape under the cable to hold it parallel but that doesn't help it engage with the socket.

I ran the apple hardware diagnostic tool (startup while holding the 'D' key) and it gave me this error - 4MOT/4/40000002 - Right-Side-0. It seems like the laptop can't recognize the right fan without the socket being locked down.

Is there any way to fix just the flap? Or the ZIF socket? I have some experience doing SMD soldering so it's not out of the realm of possibility to replace the socket itself if I can find the part.

Cam Bennett, the connector is a FF14A-5C-R11DL-B-3H. It is available at places like this and many others. The only proper way to fix this would be to replace the connector.

I'm sure Cam got the replacement connector from part info and link @oldturkey03 gave her. Then either had the skills to replace it or got someone with micro soldering-skills to do it for her.
