How do I replace the USB charging port?

My son dropped his Kindle 8 and screwed up the charging port. The cord is loose in the socket and the Kindle won't charge. I need to know how to replace the USB port.

The link you provided is for Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8, what we are looking for is the connector for an Amazon Fire HD 8, the tablet, not a kindle.
