I doubt you could make a good enough connection w/ super glue,
Its not that hard to solder it

I disagree......

My hands are too big, and i'm too dumb in the head

I've tried several times over the past few months. I just can't do it.

Hi, my name is Chris, and i'm a soldering retard.

I'm going to take it out again and pay somebody to do it.

i still think super glue would work... as long as you dont get any between the resistor and the circuit.
