Can a broken wifi/bluetooth wire be reconnected without soldering?

Thanks to the wonderful information on this site I was recently able to successfully replace the keyboard on my macbook for $40 after a coffee spill (I now use a sippy cup when the laptop is open!).

However… after re-assembly my bluetooth didn’t seem to be working (wifi is fine). I don’t use bluetooth much for peripherals but it apparently is necessary for airdropping things between my macbook and ipads which is something that I do A LOT for my work.

I have traced the problem to a broken wire going from the wifi card to the display assembly (shown here):

Please note that I am NOT a computer techie, just someone who is probably too brave about opening my stuff and rummaging around. I do not have access to a soldering gun. Although I prefer to fix things myself if I can, I am happy to admit defeat if it is beyond my capabilities. I don’t have access to an apple authorized servicer where I live (and they often frown on self-repairs anyway).


1) Could this wire be fixed without soldering, even if the result imperfect?

1b) If it can be fixed but soldering would be required I’d still like to know that - I might be able to find a general computer repairperson around my town.

The problem is you really can’t reconstruct the coax cable design with the length of cable you have.

I would just replace the antenna unit or the cable. Follow this IFIXIT guide to take the display off MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Late 2013 Display Assembly Replacement then pop off the black clutch cover to expose the antenna unit.

Thanks, that is very helpful!

It doesn't seem as easy to find just the antenna bar for the late 2013 (most of what I'm finding includes the camera and everything) - do you have any reliable parts sites you recommend in US/Canada?

Just get a unibody unit to steal the cable from it

Bummer, sorry to hear bud. Alot of courage poking around in a Macbook but unfortunately when these things happen its expensive lessons.

Just the heads up though - did u thoroughy inspect the logic board whilst replacing keyboard to make sure no coffee spills were present?
