Battery accidentally disconnected needs reconnecting

I recently accidentally knocked my battery off while cleaning my Mac (unfortunately one of my hand shakes a bit too much)… I tried putting it back in place but it won’t seem to connect, and after seeing that batteries are changed using the tab and not the whole bracket I am worried I have really broken it.

Any advice on how I can get it fixed (preferably a home fix)?

I’m not sure I 100% understand what you mean with “tab” but if you are referring to the female connector that is soldered down on the board (meaning the part on the left in step 3 of the battery replacement and not the part they are pulling out with the tab) I’m afraid you’ll have to order a new connector and solder it in place, but you’ll need to double check that none of the soldering pads are ripped off the board, otherwise you’ll need to use jumper wires to restore the connections. Maybe it’s better to take it into a repair shop to have them have a look at it since you mentioned one of your hands shakes a bit too much.

If you didn’t break off the connector of the board, just try to slide the male end of the connector back into the female connector that is on the board like mentioned in Step 3.

That does sound like what I’ve done, I’m just not familiar with the correct terms... it came off clean and I managed to connect it, but from what you said it sounds like I’ll need to solder a new piece in place!

Thank you for your help
