Tough removing thermistor cable from Einsy board and might have broken it

Printed a new larger case for my MK3S+.  Was removing all the cables from the old board in the case, and the two thermistor cables would not release. Pressing the tab did nothing.  I removed the board from the case, and only those two cables were still attached and then with a bit too much pressure, the connector on the board came off.   Wonder if I can fix this?    But looking at Prusa shop, the board is out of stock.    So a couple of questions from a fairly new Prusa owner.   Does this look fixable? should I order a replacement and if so, any other supplies besides Prusa?

Re-assembled into new case and its working. But will still look at getting a new Einsy board, at least for a backup.

(has also happened to me). the plug does not necessarily need a locking mechanism. Before you buy a new Einsyboard, I would rather replace the defective sockets (simple soldering). If you do not have the possibility to solder, you may find someone in your area who will do it for you (see Prusaworld).

Be careful.  I bought a new hot end to have for a spare, and before long a second printer grew around it.
