Broke SN 750 1 Tb SSD


I own a MacBook Air (early 2015). The storage was a bit light, so I decided to search for a 1Tb SSD to replace the 128Gb ssd. I got one from a French Marketplace, a WD 1Tb SN750. After perusing the forums, I found out that I needed an adaptor, which I bought too. Then, in my intelligence, I watched a tutorial on youtube. I consequently needed a T4 screwdriver and a much thinner dissipator to fit the MacBook Air. I just needed to wait for the PostOffice to bring the ssd.

It was an easy job to unscrew the 6 screws, then when attempting to detach the dissipator, I had a nasty surprise, two parts of the components stayed glued to the sort of ribbon and detached to the ssd.

In your opinion, is there anything that can be done now? I know that this a stupid question, but 101 EUR was a silly investment too.
