Default Mini USB port replacement?

Has anyone here replaced the mini USB port on their clip or clip+? Mine's gone bad. I have to hold the plug and press it in real hard into the port in order for it to connect to computer or charge. I've tried a bunch of different cables, and tried cleaning the contacts.

If yes, which replacement did you order, and anything to watch out for in soldering the new one? Even if I destroy it while trying, nothing lost, it's not working now.

I have a second one that I'm using, so this would be a bonus.

Mini USB actually. You can probably find the same part in a catalog like mouser:
