I have an ASUS P5B Premium motherboard and whilst removing several SATA cables I failed to press the release clip and inadvertently pulled the SATA plastic shroud from the motherboard leads. The leads and the plastic shroud are OK but I do not know how to put back the plastic shroud. Do I just supeglue back the plastic shroud or is the matter more complicated than that?

Can anyone please offer any advice?

that depends on what it looks like now... is the center piece still there?

The centre piece exists in good condition and pins on the motherboard are all there and fairly straight.

Those "super" glue types would not be the best for affixing a data cable socket. Better would be some hot glue around its base. Best would be an epoxy type adhesive.
Note the other SATA sockets, there is a 'key' at one end of the center strip. Ensure that all sockets are mounted the same way, then gently press the socket straight down to the board surface.There are only 7 connection pins for the original SATA cable. The e-SATA connections total 15. If all the pins are still straight and intact, you may be lucky. SATA connections:

Hot glue is your best bet. I see a lot of people using this in the PC world to secure cables for systems that are being shipped.

A lot of hot glue melts plastic so be careful if you go that route.

Those are great tips. Thank you.

Many thanks for the heads up.
