Broken analog zif connector, top pins snapped off!

Bought another broken 3DS thinking this would be an easy fix as it was described as just analog issues due to drop damage. Shouldn't have been surprised that it wasn't that easy.

The clasp and top pins on the zif connector are clean gone. I've tried seating the ribbon cable with hot glue, but that just brings it from completely nonresponsive to spastic then nonresponsive. I've tried multiple analogs so it's just a connection, not a part, issue.

My question is do the top pins play a role in the connection or am I just not getting it down tight enough? There's no way I can muster the precision to resolder this thing so I'm looking for any paper glue style hacks you can think of to get this thing connected. Thank you!

I think to get it working (good), you need to desolder the old one and solder the new connector back in. It’s not really difficult to do it, but it is small.

And no, the pins just need to make contact with the copper traces on the ribbon cable.

Perhaps someone else have experience with using glue in combination with ZIF connectors. But I think to let it work for good, you need to solder.
