Soldering a new USB port


My mom her Galaxy S3 (i8190) mini usb port broke (the little thing inside, just broke in half).

Now, I've did some soldering before but only with much larger objects.

Since this is very tiny, are there any things I should pay extra attention to?

Plus, since I don't have a desoldering station or equipment; What is the most easy way to remove the old one?

Very much thanks in advance!

PS. I apologize for my bad english..

If u use hot air soldering station be carefful with microphone, put some tape onit to protect it.

U need to be carefull with pads, not to make short. Otherwise yout phone will not only be no charging but it wont work.

To replace USB connector properly u need microspoce, hot ait station and this soldering iron. Use flux!

To replace USB connect with only soldering iron put a lot of soldering on it and use max heat, then with tweezers remove usb connector, clean wholes and solder new one!
