Default Battery plug broke off.

Basically,it's as says. I opened the case too hard and ended up breaking off that tan colored piece the battery plugs into. Is there any way to put this back on? It still has the 3 metal legs coming out that has to be attached to the board.

Here's a crummy MSPAINT diagram.

Might be fixed with some basic soldering skills?

This happened to mine recently...Haven't gotten around to resoldering yet. The part is really small so if you try it, make sure to use paper or something to divide the contacts so you don't end up with a short. Also make sure to use a fine tip on your soldering iron.
