I own a Macbook, retina 12 inch, early 2015. I had to replace the battery. But when doing that, the connector of the wifi cable broke of the cable. I dont know how to connect the wifi cable connector to the cable, it is too small. Anyone who knows a sollution? Thank you.

You'll need some fine tools and some sort of hands free magnifying glass. Also some steady hands.

I believe the connector is an I-PEX connector. I don't know the exact size. I'm pretty sure those cables go into the display assembly. So, I don't think replacing the cable is an option.

In the future. Always pop the antenna at the base. Don't grab the leads. Preferably use a plastic spudger. When reinstalling. Use good quality tweezers to position it and push straight down.
