Charging port broken, how to replace it?

In short, title

a few months ago the charger on my Asus x555L started acting strangely, only charging when it was turned at a certain angle. now it refuses to charge entirely, and the charger will not stay secure in the port as the port is broken. how would I replace the port with a new one, thereby fixing the issue?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The charger port is soldered onto the board meaning you’d need either a hot air rework station + soldering station to remove the port or a soldering iron station + solder sucker to remove the old solder to remove the old charger port.

A lot of the time these ports can actually be repaired without replacing by redoing the solder on these ports as seen in this video:
