Broken WIFI/Bluetooth adapter metal part!

Block Image

Fellow Awesome People,

My macbook bluetooth was not working.

after a closer look, i noticed that circled cable socket (attached PIC) is broken and 1 out of 4 soldered legs is not making the contact with the motherboard

Block Image

the issue is that it has broken out with the path piece and therefore i cant resolder

i have pointed out the damaged leg on the 2nd pic

any one can point me out to the diagram of BCM943224PCIEBT airport card ?

or any solutions how to jump this ?

much appriciated !

please note WIFI is fully functional .

Sorry time for a new board ;-{

The logic board is layered so there is really no location to solder the inner pin if the part has lifted up tearing the trace foils. RF lines shouldn’t be altered as all you’ll do is interfere with the emission control so it doesn’t radiate outward at the antenna not at the board internally.

Here’s the replacement: MacBook Pro 15" and 17" Unibody (Mid 2010) Airport/Bluetooth Board

Thilina - Arbaman's is spot on you'll need to get the schematics & board views so you can first locate what is failing and then ID the needed part/s.

Sorry to say without having the board in front of me I really couldn't answer this effectively as all were doing is playing Whack-A-Mole remotely. Somethings we can do that but a shorted out board is a very different beast as I don't know what you damaged remotely.
