eMac Power Switch..

Well i was inside my eMac yesterday, and while i just connected the power switch to the cable i remembered i had to go back in, so almost instantaneously i ripped the cover off the computer and then i remember i should have disconnected it... well my luck is that only one of the prongs on the switch on the case is missing. Will that hinder it in any way? Because 3 of the 4 are still in tact? how would i go about putting a new one in? Thanks..

Second one counting from the right? Don't worry, it wasn't there from the start. Look at power switch plug: "hole" for this prong is a little smaller than other ones. You didn't break anything
