Antenna to the wifi card is cut

I went to replace my airport card thinking that the card was the problem, well turns out the antennas that attach to it are cut. With how short they are cut, there is no possible way to repair them and I can't find anywhere online that sells a replacement. Can I get some help?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Being such a tiny coaxial cable it won’t be an easy job, but if you can find a decent microsolderer in your area he will be able to repair the cable the way I did some time back with a severed cable on a Macbook Pro. Microscope, tools and some patience are essential for a successfull repair, but it can be done without going through a screen disassembly or replacement. Enclosed is a photo of the job done at the time..you may hand it over to the Tech for reference.

Hi Cody

This is a complicated part to replace, as the antennas are integrated into the screen assembly. As I see it, you have two options to fix this issue:

  1. Replace the damaged Wifi Antenna
    • Remove the Display Assembly following this guide.
    • Slide the black cover to the side until you are able to pull it off completely. Remove the wifi antenna bar and replace with this part. Try to avoid damaging or removing the Front Camera cable because you will need to remove the entire bezel to replace this part.
  2. Replace the whole Display Assembly
    • Remove the Display Assembly following the guide.
    • Use this part to reinstall on the Macbook Air.

Either method is a good way to fix the Wifi Antenna, but if you are having more problems than just a simple range issue (such as grayed out or not showing the wifi card at all), you may need to replace the airport card as well.
