Default My remote fob broke!!!

I was concerned about its range since it was diminshing and the battery was brand new so I thought maybe the prongs holding the battery was dirty so I tried to remove the battery to no avail then I pulled on the top prong off and the entire assembly broke off, not necessary, it'* still on but held by one prong that hasn't broken off so it doesn't work anymore. Could I solder it back on or have to replace it?
