It can be fix'd, very easy to do.
Mine also did the same after fitting the second HPFP just becoz of a cracked sensor. I was not gonna buy a complete HPFP just becoz of a sensor.
You would need to completely strip the black plastic from the top of the sensor, then solder the two pins to wires,..once done you would then have to trace and connect the two wires to the other end as per the plug. If you not gonna use after market plugs I would suggest that you give the connection or wire little bit slack to allow for HPFP to com off in future.

If you want I will help, I have a spare top sensor that I have already done.
