Antenna Amplifier connector damaged

Oops. After finally popping the rear tailgate window with the manual release, I went on to remove the glass hatch. And that is where my clumsiness struck, I damaged the most rightern connector to a point of no repair. In the picture you will see the most rightern connector how it is supposed to be, mine is broken.



As far as I figured out, this is the connector for the antenna in the glass. Is there a way to fix this? Problably with a new connector? But it seems sort of 'glued' to the metal trimmings of the glass. Where to go from now? Can I run radio without this? And what does the red connector (which connects to the spoiler) do?

Many questions.
Hope to hear from you!

Thnx

Can't say exactly how to repair the connector and yes that is the connection to the conductive lines in the glass for the antenna. This guy is a great resource for all antenna amplifier questions-
