Water Damage mixed with Breaking Retaining Clip on Digitizer

Ok so I was trying to repair my friends iphone 6 plus. He dropped it in water and I believe fried it, it would not turn on at all after sitting in rice for days. I disassembled it and scrubbed everything down with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and let the logic board sit in the alcohol for about 30 min. It looked like the Logic board may have burned up or something because I still had to scrub it good to get all of this black debris off of it. I also ordered a new battery from ifixit to replace the old one.

I let everything sit for a few days after scrubbing it and put in the new battery however there is a massive problem. The first flap you take off from the digitizer the connecter ripped off and is stuck in the logic board. I did not notice this until I put the screen back on. I am so upset about this. I just tried to put the flap over the broken connecter the best I can and screw it down but surely I will need more support or something to even know if it will work.

So what happens when I go to power the phone on now is it powers on mostly black with these white boxes going across the top the screen and that is all I can see. Sometimes it lets me shut it off with a hard reset but one time would not shut off at all until I unplugged the battery. Also one time so far it felt like the phone was working where I can hold the power button and slide to shut off. I still could not see it I just kind of guess I was at the slide off screen but it worked.

So my question is, one do I need a whole new digitizer which go for about $350 or is there a way I can fix this? I have watched some solder videos but they are usually soldering the connecter on the logic board not the flap itself. I also viewed a thread talking about using Mylar tape and something to wedge pressure on the flap to keep it in place. Linked here: (I am not even sure this is the same issue) broken digitizer retaining flaps

My problem with the water damage and all is who knows if I get a new digitizer if the phone will even work at all. Also would this one flap cause the whole screen to just stay black? Is there any way I can test this temporarily before I order this tape to even attempt this?

Thanks in advance Ifixit!

I assume you posted this quite some time ago and maybe someone else can benefit from this info but the price of the replacement parts has declined drastically. You shopuld be able to afford any parts you need to replace. Won't be but the funnest cash you spend at least you can avoid an awkward situation with your buddy.
