Exclamation How to replace Motherboard Flex Cable!

So I had this phone for a whole week sat it on the counter and my little boy got a hold of it and started sucking on the home keys. After that happened the keys worked at random so I wanted to take the phone apart to see if I could troubleshoot. While taking the phone apart I accidentally tore the motherboard Flex cable ribbon so I was pretty bummed about that. I re-ordered the cable. Before I put this in my phone I know that one end of the cable clamps right in but the other end does not have a clipping device and was held on by blue tape. I had to kind of pry it off so I was wondering when I replace this do I need to replace it with the same blue tape holding it on because there is not any connector I can see and it doesn't look like I can solder it to the board so a little advice would be helpful

Thank you

The new one should have come with a replacement tape, no?
