Default Fixing a ripped trace

I got lucky enough to get a p28 that had a chip installed no socket. So well I went to remove the old chip and ripped a trace. Its still there and see where it goes etc but I do I actually set it back in place on the board.

I don't know how many PCB layers these ECUs are, but if you damaged a via and you don't know what else connects to it with more than 2 layers, then it's tough.

Otherwise, just use an x-acto knife and cut the loose part away, scrape the soldermask off both ends of the broken trace and bypass it with a wire.
If the trace is not actually broken, just loose from the board, you can stick it back with superglue. Just don't expect superglue to hold the soldering heat.
