Messed up removal of TDA2822

Sajid Rahum

Need help. I cut the TDA2822 (WX model) and tried my best to get the pins out - used copper wick etc. no luck.  

Landed up wiring the 8 pin dil with replacement NJM chip.  When i turned around, looks like one anchor dropped out - you can see the flux showing. 

My worry where did that bit that dropped out was to go to?  I will place a wire if needed.

This was been a nightmare replacing the 2822.

Any suggestion is welcome
