Thunderbolt 3 Port Replacement

crwdns2893800:0crwdne2893800:0:

Hello all. The Thunderbolt 3 port on my Thinkpad T470 (Type 20HD) has stopped working. I have already installed all the driver updates to no avail. After inspecting the port closer, I found there is physical damage to the port and several of the pins are severely bent. I believe the only option is to replace it. However, there are basically no repair places that actually solder stuff on the motherboard, and it would more than likely be too expensive to pay a shop to do it. I am going to attempt to do it myself, and I was wondering if anybody has any tips before I do this.

Thanks,

Conrad
