How to fix v911 tail motor

Hey guys
This is my first time on an rc forum, having a read through and the only thing I can find is how to replace tail motor on v911.
I'm not sure if mine needs replacing but the end where the cables go in has come off, I've tried clicking it back into place but it's not working. Not sure how to line it up so that the tail motor works again.
I love this helicopter and it has taken a beating so I would like to fix this. As far as replacing the motor I wouldn't really know how to connect everything up again and my soldering skills are horrid. It would be awesome if I could get some help with this.

Your soldering skills are going to improve if you stick with this hobby =P

One thing i learned about soldering is that if you heat up the wires, it'll soak up the lead right in. The lead actually wraps itself around the hot copper. If you do that to both wires, and then press them together while heating them, up, the lead on both wires melts together like water and you're done in about 2 seconds. Easy. You don't need four arms, just three

And if you were only born with 2 hands and no prehensile tail you can get one of these at walmart, ratshack, etc.

Radio shack sells some conductive glue if you do not like to solder. Buy some 1m heat shrink tubing to cover the wire, or some liquid electrical tape works too. If the wire shorts out you will blow your board. Practice first.
