So like, my dad has a pioneer double din radio that he said i could have and we tried fitting it

I got the pins to release the oem radio, and pulled it out, i unclipped the power cables for the radio

Now i found the fakra connector for the antenna to be a bit fiddly, so i was trying to unclip it.

My dad at this point was holding my radio to stop it scratching my new gear knob.

Dad then twists the radio to have a look.....

The fakra connector snaps and wont go back on so i am without a radio!!!

fine you might say? buy another female white fakra? noooooo, the copper inside the connector has snapped too so even when i hold it up the radio still doesnt work

Is there any way of fixing this? without buying a whole new ariel lead from the antenna to the radio? is there some way to cut the broken piece off and crimp an extension onto it?

HELP!!!!!
