The power jack on my X1 Carbon Gen 2 is broken. I have ordered a replacement. However i cannot find any replacement instructions anywhere. Does anyone here know how to replace the power jack on the X1 Carbon gen 2?

On a 2nd gen Carbon (4xxx CPU) you cannot replace it without an expensive rework station and a certain amount of skill. The power jack is soldered to the motherboard as part of a unit along with the proprietary dock port. The only way I have been able to find the part is to harvest it from an "organ donor". I have never seen the part available for sale.
