Bonsai Buckaroo (Adabox 015) motor connector problems

Per @adafruit_support_carter, posting this as a separate thread.

I have not been able to get a secure motor wire connection to the Bonsai Buckaroo I received in Adabox 015.

One of the tabs on the connector broke off when pressing with moderate force. Even pressing on the underlying mechanism with a small screwdriver, it is difficult to seat the motor wires. Once they are in, the connection seems quite loose.

I am planning to remove that connector from the Bonsai Buckaroo board and replace with direct soldering or a pigtail connector to the motor as a workaround.

This is what I did with mine.
After soldering hot glue the wires in place because the solder pads may come off.
