    I followed this guide to replace my battery

    https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Motorola+Moto+X+2nd+Generation+Battery+Replacement/40717

    On step 8 the flex cable is attached to the back of the battery with some sort of adhesive. The cable doesn't stick anymore and my volume down button is broken because of this. What type of adhesive is used to reattach that cable?

    Don't know, but you might try double sided tape... or just tape it down, if possible. Personally, I wouldn't start applying any kind of liquid adhesive.

    The problem is that it seems like that connection was grounding it somehow. So I feel like tape might block the connection.

    The battery flex cable is covered with "mylar" material. There should be no grounding through the mylar as seen in the photo. Is this your battery? If so, I don't see any exposed traces in the cable. I hope you're not talking about taping the connector itself.

    Sorry. Wrong cable. I'm talking about the cable they remove in step 7 picture 2. guide
    Which is the connection for power and volume. It had adhesive.

    Sorry. I mean the cable I mean the cable in step 7 part 2 of the guide. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Motorol...lacement/40717. It's the button cable and is unrelated to the battery. But it was stuck down on the battery and I pried it up like the guide shows.

    Adhesive is only used on these cables so they don't move around... it's not that important to use the same stuff. As long as the connectors mate correctly you could even use tape over the top of the cable to hold it in place. Try some blue painter's tape over the top so it's easy to remove if you have to do this again later on. Blue tape should be strong enough to hold the cable down securely.
