How do I fit the hard drive temperature sensor

I have been given the above model and upon looking inside I noticed that the temperature sensor was lose. I have had a quick look and cannot see where it is supposed to be attached.

It is attached to the Hard drive casing.

Can anyone help

Remove the RAM and you will see the small black Receptacle that it plugs into.

Step 4, there you can see how the thermal sensor is placed.

Update:

I believe that the thermal sensor cable is connected to the underside of the logic board. See my comment for details.

I would remove the logic board from the case and look for a free connector on it's underside.

Thank you for your answer. However it is not the answer I am looking for. As you will see from my original question the cable is attached to the drive casing. I need to know how and where to attach it to the base unit not the hard drive case.

Sorry, I misunderstood your question. If you take a look at the logic board guide it looks like the cable is seated on the underside of the logic board. I would take it apart and look for a mounting point that isn't used. If the cable fit's it is probably the one. Apple dosen't usually have unused connectors on their logic boards.
