Is all this necessary? There is a youtube teardown that states the usb port should be replaceable from just the 3 screws, so no glue gun, no screen removal etc. So just step 9.

So is this repair accurate?

Step 10 tells you to push out the charging port from inside the case, which would require first removing the screen. Maybe it's possible to just remove the charging port from outside the case like in the video, but it may require a lot of force and pushing it out from inside is just easier.

I mean I replace my charging port every 6 months now and I the only thing I do is unscrew the charging port area and get a tiny flathead bit after applying heat and pull off the metal plate. After that, I insert the flathead into the bottom of the charging port from where it plugs and push it outwards.
