    good luck. Generally motherboard parts are not repairable. You might find a willing shop to resolder or glue the broken part back.

    are you or any friends good with the soldering iron?

    you might be able to get a new housing from an electronics shop (jaycar, radioshack, etc) or extracted from an old unused motherboard.. If not, then use a battery holder that matches the voltage and rating of your CMOS battery (usually 3.3v i think) and solder that on.. making sure you seal all loose conductive ends.
