Replacing the Audio Assembly

I have a customers 4th gen nano, there is no sound coming from the audio assembly, so naturally, i would replace it... but in the 4th gen nano it is soldered onto the board, i just want to know if anyone has ever successfully soldered a new one on, or fixed the old one, ie..replacing the pins inside it or whatnot. any ideas?

Is this a good question?

I think you will need an all-new board as the soldering is most likely surface mounted; making it incredibly difficult to solder.
