USB port replacement for SM-T350

USB port replacement for Samsung SM-T350 (Tab A 8 inch)

How difficult is it? Soldering required? Is it not a simple plug-in replacement?

Looking at the part for sale on ebay it doesn't appear to have a ribbon cable pre-attached, so I'm wondering if it's not just a plug in and done repair. The Samsung S2 and others have charging ''assemblies'' that are replaced as a whole unit, so does the T350's USB port have pin-style connectors or what?

There are other manuals and guides on here for the SM-T350 (headphone jack, battery, etc.) but none for the USB port so I'm thinking maybe its not as simple as those.

If you've replaced the port on your Tab A8 I'd appreciate any info you could give on the procedure and any tips you may have learned while doing it.

Thanks,

Jason
