Broken fan header, please help

924 3
So my 3 pin fan header connector on my motherboard broke while I tried to unplug a fan. The pins are fine, but the little white tab behind the pins broke off and I can't find it. Is there anyway to fix it? Can I RMA my board for it?

Thanks in advance!!!

It wont be easy to fix, but the fan header will still work without the plastic tab on the back, just be careful to not break any pins. Im not sure if you can RMA for this..

I doubt the mfg will accept an rma on that board for a broke fan header. However the fan header should still function normally. You just gotta find a way to keep the fan plug in place.

If I come up with any ideas Iwill be sure to let you know.
