I had a similar scare on an earlier Mini 10. I had unplugged the battery to flush the NVRAM and the socket cracked and one of the leads pulled out (but on the battery side, not the motherboard side). I was able to get it back together but it had me worried for a couple minutes.......
..........well, not that worried.....the unit was going back to Dell anyway. LOL
Glad to hear you went from a "tragedy impending" to a "tragedy narrowly averted"......Bob Weir

Coming back to this, trying to take the WWAN out of my mini 9 and put it into my mini 10, hit a pitfall early on.
The SIM card slot on the mini 9 is built into the motherboard, and is completely unmovable, and there is nothing on the Mini 10 to accept the sim card despite the slot in the case, and the presence of the SIM card lead. There is a place nicely marked where it should be, its just non-existent and would have to be soldered in. Very fustrating.
It's also rather annoying the empty Mini PCI-E slot doesn't have the port to accept a PCI-E card, even tho the pins and screws are there! (You could solder it if you have a magnifying glass and a steady hand)
At the very least I removed my TV card just so its not annoying me by being there and non-functional
