    I have a 2007 Macbook Pro Santa Rosa. I was taking my computer apart to reapply thermal paste and I accidentally snapped the fan control solenoid or at least that's what I think it is. It's the very middle connector in the attachment. It's a weird connection going to a chip that just is taped to the bottom case. I was wondering, is there a place I can buy that connector so I can try resoldering it on? When I turned on my Macbook Pro, the fan sounded like a turbine. One of the fans was at 0 while the other was at 6000rpm in smcfancontrol. Any help or knowledge is appreciated!

    Well there were two wires coming off the connector and it was attached to a what looked like a soldered point I believe.
