Cracked keyboard bezel X1 Carbon 2nd Gen

I have a 2nd Gen X1 Carbon. somehow the keyboard bezel has cracked right above the charging socket. This means the plug no longer sits in there securely. It worked fine for a while if i wiggled it about a bit. Now it has become too lose. I managed to find a replacemtn bezel on ebay fairly cheap.

Can someone please advise how to remove the bezel ? I found a video for the X1 Carbon Gen 1. Is it the same process?

Have you tried the HMM(Hardware maintenance manual) ?  Try page 72.

Re: Cracked keyboard bezel X1 Carbon 2nd Gen

So after looking at the broken part more, i realized the issue is not really the cracked bezel. I think it is the power jack. Mine shows exposed pins. From all the photos online of replacement jack, i notice there whould be a plasting cover on these. Ordering the part appears quite simple. But i caanot find anywhere that has instructions as to how to replace it. I could not find anything in the service manual
