Default I fixed mine

I broke the plastic connector on one of my Raptors that I had used as a eSata Drive. The copper pins were left intact, so I didn't have to deal with that.

I used 5-minute epoxy to set the plastic piece in place, for the next operation.

After the epoxy set, I used Crazy Glue by allowing it to flow into the crack between the mateing parts. Crazy Glue will actually take a long time to set when more than a miniscule drop is used, so it had time to penetrate the crack .

Once I was sure the Crazy Glue had penetrated the crack, I applied a drop of Instant Hardener (available at any Hobby Store) and walla, good as new.

The computer god was shining on me that day.
