Replacing USB connector on Dell Venue 7000 (7840)

The usb port on my Dell Venue 8 7840 has become loose and will no longer charge (If I 'jiggle' the usb cable and get it in just the right position inside the port, it will start charging, but it stops charging as soon as I let go of the cord). Can anyone give me advice on how to fix this? Can the USB port be purchased somewhere? Can it be easily swapped out or does it have to be de-soldered? I wasn't able to find any guides for the Dell Venue 8 7840 on ifixit.

Thanks in advance for any help solving this issue.
