Nintendo Switch headphone jack repair

Had a Nintendo Switch come in with a headphone plug snapped off in the jack. Unfortunately it was totally wedged in, so we opted to replace the jack entirely.

Opening up the Switch we find everything to be easily accessed and we go head with removing the metal shielding (right), headsink (left), Gamecard port (top left) so we could get to and remove the SD card and audio module.

Then it was simply a job of desoldering the old jack and soldering in a brand new one, and it all works as expected! Thermal paste was cleaned off and replaced, but forgot to get photos of that bit!
