After doing a battery replacement, my NFC has stopped working. Since the battery was swollen to the point of bulging the back, I assume something got damaged during the replacement.

I have found a replacement part for the NFC antenna, but can't find where it would go. The only information I've been able to find is that it's under the fingerprint sensor. That wasn't touched during the repair.

Does anyone have more detailed knowledge of the NFC antenna?

It's not on the fingerprint sensor. It's coupled with the battery and maybe the wireless charging coil if it has one
Thanks for the info. Where would it be coupled on the battery? I see the contacts for the wireless charging coil (which works just fine) but nothing specific for an NFC antenna. So I'm wondering if it was disposed of with the failed battery.
