Hi Steven,

Fortunately, replacing the charging port on your phone isn't too bad of a job; it's on a small separate board from the motherboard, so it's just a matter of opening it up, swapping out the board and presto, you've got a brand new charging port!

Sorry that iFixit doesn't have a guide for that, but there's a French site called SOSav that does. Here you go.

You can pick up the part from several places; I usually check Amazon, eBay and AliExpress, myself. Here's one of the first ones that came up on a quick search.

As you can see, it'll only cost you about $10 USD to fix your phone. Don't forget to replace the rear cover adhesive when you go to put it back together! Pro tip: Buy a couple when you order the precut adhesive sheet; they're all too easy to mess up and if you do then you've got to wait while you reorder until you can finish reassembling your phone. Trust me, I speak from experience!
