Antenna broken on AC87R, replaceable?

I found someone in my area selling a ac87R for $20. However one of the antenna is broken.

I think amazon does sell some aftermarket antenna, is it easily replaceable?

Doesn't it just unscrew?

I'm not sure, I only own ac86u and ac68p. They both seem to unscrew.

I'm not sure if it's actually broken from inside the chassis. If it is broken from inside the chassis, I'm assuming this is still fixable with some soldering?

Broken plastic. Unscrew the connector, replace the antenna. This router has limited support. Are you sure you want it?

Oh I did not know about this buggy router until I did a simple search on the forum. Although I'm only going to be using it as an additional AP, I definitely don't want something that is so unreliable.

I'll look into getting more AC68u/p. Thanks.
