Soldering will just melt the plastic carrier, try some conductive epoxy.

if you had a wide soldering tip you could melt solder on it and make a solder ball fall on the wire and then just put the wire into the solder and your good.

I would go w/ brutal's suggestion.  If you can't get it to work, how much does it really cost to replace it?  I'd assume you don't live in a cardboard box.
